Australian Bush Food "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For tens of thousands of years Aboriginal people got their food from the native plants and other creatures which inhabited this ancient continent. A rich range of staple foods, eggs, herbs, spices, stimulants, tanning agents, creams, anaelgesics and other pharmaceuticals, possibly even contraceptives, were found in the natural environment. Through seeing, touching and tasting this one-day course will introduce you to the Bush Tucker that can be grown in gardens and on farms, from identification through to harvesting, processing and marketing.

Becoming a Certified Organic Producer "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As demand for certified organic food continues to skyrocket in markets around the World, Australian landholders are beginning to realise the importance of the export markets and growing domestic markets which are now available to certified organic growers. This is a short course to introduce potential growers to the practicalities of organic production.

Data researched by the Queensland Department of Primary Industries shows annual growth in the organic food market of 15% annually in the countries to which Australia exports most food. Trends suggest that the Japanese market will be about $25 billion by 2005, the UK $10 billion. Germany and France will be larger markets than the UK. In Australia growth in the market is desperately hampered by the supply available.

Community opinion has moved steadily against factory farming, genetically engineered food and the unknown contaminant load of conventionally produced foods, particularly in countries affected by eco-disasters and given that food travels by many pathways to the consumer, organically certified produce is gaining acceptance as the only reliably safe food, unless you grow your own or have a direct relationship with a grower.

Prices received for organic produce generally command premiums of 30-100% and many organic growers often receive single requests to export quantities of dried fruit and other foods equivalent to more than their entire annual production.

Becoming a Certified Organic Grower is not a difficult process but there is much to learn about the management of soil fertility, pests and diseases through organic means as well as the regulations governing initial certification and continued registration as a certified grower.

Presenters of the course will explain certification standards and will take participants through an inspection of organic growing systems at The Food Forest, explaining what they are looking for in terms of certification.

Annemarie and Graham Brookman who grow some 150 varieties of organic vegetables, fruit, nuts, native foods and grains as well as free-range poultry at their property, will share their experiences of converting  from conventional to organic and the way they have been able to improve soil fertility, cope with pests and diseases, and develop direct markets.

Preservation of Food - from Garden to Kitchen "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Southern Australias unique environment enables us to grow plant varieties which provide long seasons of fresh food from almost any  species we choose but even the best planned garden or orchard produces the occasional glut. And anyway there are so many types of food that we would love to have out of season; pickled olives, dried fruit, frozen sweetcorn and delicious nuts sound pretty inviting in the middle of winter.

Preserving is the answer and this course will teach you the secrets of small scale, natural food preparation, preservation and storage.

Learn about when to harvest, freezing, drying, storing successfully, combating pests, keeping the vitality in stored food, pickling, fermenting, home milling, food hygiene, packaging, small scale marketing and self sufficiency.

This one day intensive course will involve food quality tasting, the hands-on operation of small scale food processing equipment and the sharing of treasured recipes and techniques from different countries.

Colin Burrow: The End of the Epithet "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Odyssey is much harder to translate than The Iliad. One persons interpolation or historical curiosity will be another persons moment of deep psychological insight. That problem is compounded by the subject matter and social world of the poem. It is full of travellers and strangers who might be gods, or con men, or, like much enduring godly Odysseus of the many wiles himself, a little bit of both. So no one ever quite knows whats going on. A swineherd might turn out to be an abducted prince. A Cyclops might greet a stranger who addresses it politely by bashing the brains out of one of his companions as if he were a puppy. A good king might politely offer a wary welcome and food, listen to a strangers story, and then after a tactful delay ask who he is and where he is from. And then the guest might lie.

Most are concentrated in the north, where 70 per cent of the population is illiterate. All that was needed was an eloquent figure who could applaud the governors embrace of sharia while pointing out that they fell far short of the code of conduct they favoured.

Oona Hathaway and Scott Shapiros point is that for all its problems, the New World Order is better than the Old. Theirs is a valuable reminder that law matters and that international co-operation is not a utopia, but a functioning reality. Recently, it has been hard to hear that truth above the din produced by bad actors, like Putin and Trump, and by criticism of the neoliberal order from the left and the populist right, which obscures the positive effects of internationalism. Whats more, we take for granted a world in which the assumption is that countries will not engage in war.

Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Why study permaculture?

Population growth and consumption levels are pushing our Planet towards a catastrophic environmental tipping point. Permaculture offers a way that we, as individuals and communities, can take control of our future and live sustainably.

Permaculture is a design system which draws upon the great truths of traditional knowledge, modern scientific understandings and the ethics of a peaceful and democratic society. The approach was first developed in Australia in the late 70s by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren and is now taught in over 100 countries. Since then hundreds of thousands of people have graduated from Design Courses and are using this tool to build resilience and diversity into their lives at home & in the office.

Permaculture can be employed by anyone, whatever profession or skill, on any scale, from balconies and backyards to farms, factories, businesses, schools and cities anywhere on the planet and in any climate. It offers a sustainable landscape, dignified human-scale living and self-reliant children who have the confidence to design a sustainable future for themselves.

It is based on three ethics: Care of the Earth, Care of Community and Acceptance of personal responsibility for consumption and population. Many principles, technologies and strategies have evolved to make permaculture one of the most accessible and dynamic solutions to the issues we face in the 21st Century.

About this course 

April 25-29, May 11-13 & 26-27: 10 days spread out over three teaching blocks

This 10 day intensive design course will present you with an opportunity to consider your life in a new light and give you increased confidence and many skills needed to design a sustainable and meaningful place for your future.

You will work with a group of motivated fellow students with diverse skills and backgrounds and learn through lectures, practical activities, small group work, case studies, DVDs, field trips and games.

eDNA may offer an early warning signal for deadly frog pathogen "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When Colleen Kamoroff and her graduate advisor Caren Goldberg collected water samples to look for the DNA of non-native fish species, they could not have guessed the potential importance of their timing. One month after they sampled water from 13 lakes in Californias Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park in 2015, endangered mountain yellow-legged frogs in three of the seven lakes theyd inhabited died in large numbers. Kamoroff and Goldberg, assistant professor at Washington State University, suspected the presence of the Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) fungus. Bd, a.k.a. chytrid fungus, causes Chytridiomycosis, which has devastated populations of at least 200 species of frogs and salamanders across the globe. A healthy mountain yellow-legged frog. Photo credit: Michael Hernandez The fungus feeds on keratin in a frogs skin, causing the skin to thicken and peel. Frogs use their skin to breathe, so chytrid makes breathing difficult and causes the frog to move sluggishly and react slowly to danger. It also damages the nervous system and causes them to behave abnormally, including sitting out in the open rather than protecting themselves. Chytrid doesnt kill frogs immediately, so they will first hop and swim around, spreading the fungus to other ponds and streams. This also makes infection difficult to detect prior to a major outbreak that can kill whole frog populations. Moreover, once chytrid has infected a pond, the fungus may remain in the water forever. Detecting disease through distributed DNA Kamoroff and Goldberg analyzed the water samples for environmental DNA, or eDNAgenetic material from the

Indonesia to punish state firm over litany of failures behind Borneo oil spill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

JAKARTA The Indonesian government is preparing to punish state-owned oil and gas firm PT Pertamina over a major oil spill stemming from one of its undersea pipelines in eastern Borneo last month. An official investigation of the spill in Balikpapan Bay, in the province of East Kalimantan, which was first reported on March 31, found faults in the companys operational procedures. Among the findings by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry: the Pertamina refinery in Balikpapan, which was served by the pipeline, lacked both an early-warning system and an automated monitoring system. If the system was good, there wouldnt have been [a delay] of five to seven hours [before the oil spill was detected] and no need [to wait] until a fire broke out, Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar said on the sidelines of a hearing at the House of Representatives in Jakarta. An automated monitoring system would have alerted Pertamina immediately to changes in the pressure level in the pipeline, and thus allowed the firm to respond swiftly, Siti said. Instead, it took Pertamina four days to admit that the oil spill came from its 20-year-old pipe. By then, the slick had spread across an area greater than the city of Paris. Their emergency systems response to the leak from the pipe was very slow, said Rasio Ridho Sani, the environment ministrys director general for law enforcement. Thats why there needs to be an improvement. Part of that initial response involved setting fire to the slick

Anglo American iron ore pipeline suffers second rupture in Brazil "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When the pipe broke the mining material shot high into the air, then flowed away, contaminating a local river and pastureland. Image courtesy of MPMG On 12 March, Anglo American Brasil halted iron ore production in Minas Gerais state after the rupture of a mineral duct in the rural area of Santo Antnio do Grama, which leaked 318 tons of mining material into a local stream near its EB2 pumping station. Seventeen days later, on 29 March, a second pipeline leak occurred only 200 meters (656 feet) away from the first. It spilled 647 tons of iron ore, including 174 tons into the Santo Antnio do Grama River as well as contaminating nearby pastureland according to IBAMA, Brazils environmental agency. The mining company stated that the accident was caused by a failure in a weld, according to the communications office of the Secretary of State and Environment (SEMAD) of Minas Gerais.

Earth Day founder calls for an end to plastic pollution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Denis Hayes was the principal national organizer of the first Earth Day in 1970, and he took the event to the international stage in 1990. He is board chair of the international Earth Day Network, and President of the Bullitt Foundation. Earth Day 2018 is slated for April 22 and focuses on plastic pollution, so Mongabay took the opportunity to ask him about this years event and find out what else is on the mind of this key leader of the international environmental movement. INTERVIEW WITH DENIS HAYES Erik Hoffner for Mongabay: What was the impetus for the first Earth Day, nearly 50 years ago now? Denis Hayes: There were hundreds of important environmental issues before the first Earth Day: DDT & bird deaths. Air & water pollution. Oil spills. Herbicide use in Southeast Asia. Wilderness areas. But they were commonly viewed as unrelated. One prominent leader actually asked me, What the hell does air pollution have to do with birds? Earth Day took all these myriad strands and wove them into the fabric of modern environmentalismlinked by a coherent set of values and grounded in an ecological framework. When added together, they formed the basis for a formidable new political force. New York Times front page, April 1970. Mongabay: Whats the theme of this years Earth Day, and how can people get involved? Denis Hayes: The 2018 theme is End Plastic Pollution.  There is not much that the average person can do about the Pacific Garbage Patch or to ban

Conservationist known as a caretaker for Kenyas orphaned elephants dies at 83 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Daphne Sheldrick, a conservationist known for her work to care for and return orphaned elephants to the wild, died of breast cancer on April 12 at the age of 83. Her husband, David, was the first warden at Kenyas largest national park, Tsavo East. After his death in 1977, she started the Nairobi-based David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Daphne Sheldrick pioneered methods to rear milk-dependent elephant and rhino orphans. The organization, responsible for rearing more than 200 baby elephants to date, said that other orphanages around the world have used this knowledge to save other animals separated from their mothers. Daphne Sheldrick and her daughter Angela with Eleanor, an elephant that Daphne raised. Image The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Daphnes legacy is immeasurable and her passing will reverberate far and wide, because the difference she has made for conservation in Kenya is unparalleled, said Sheldricks daughter, Angela, in a statement from the organization. Angela Sheldrick has been its CEO for 17 years. From the daily chores required to nurture orphan elephants and other wildlife, to speaking out for the protection of wild elephants, Daphne Sheldrick lived a life driven by her belief that elephants, and other wild species, have a right to live a free and protected life just like us, the trust said. Research published in 2016 found that African elephant numbers are sliding by 8 percent every year.

Its time to confront the collusion between the palm oil industry and politicians that is driving Indonesias deforestation crisis (commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Two decades on from the fall of the Suharto dictatorship, Indonesias transition to democracy is regarded as a global success story. But lurking beneath the surface is an ugly truth. A now irrefutable body of evidence shows that regional elections, for the town mayors, district chiefs and provincial governors who hold huge sway over the lives of citizens in a decentralized state, are overwhelmingly corrupted by dark money. Political scientists, civil society observers and enforcement agencies have documented the race to the bottom as candidates compete to outspend one another, employing an array of nefarious and illegal methods collectively referred to as money politics. Indonesia Corruption Watch, a non-profit that monitors elections across the country, has described regional elections as brutal and shambolic. Many informed observers believe the phenomenon is growing worse. This system pushes to the top of the pile the candidates with the greatest tolerance for the dark arts of money politics and the ability to find wealthy backers. A study released earlier this year by the KPK, Indonesias anti-graft agency, found the majority of candidates are forced to make Faustian bargains with private interests to generate the funds required to mount a serious challenge. The donors want something in return: government contracts, jobs, policy influence and, above all, business licenses. Across much of rural Indonesia, the most valuable commodity these corrupt politicians have to offer is land. The largest demand for that land, meanwhile, is for the development of giant plantations. Predominantly to produce palm oil, a

Ghosts in the Machine: The land deals behind the downfall of Indonesias top judge "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(Baca dalam Bahasa Indonesia.) Prologue: Jakarta, 2013 It was long after the close of business when Indonesias highest-ranking judge stepped out of his official residence in Jakarta to greet some guests, one night in October 2013. It had been a busy few months for Akil Mochtar. In his capacity as chief justice of the Constitutional Court, he had been called upon to preside over a flurry of cases brought by candidates who had recently taken part in regional elections. Those who felt they had been cheated out of victory through bribes, vote tampering or any of a number of ruses used to gain an edge in close-fought contests could challenge the result in Akils court. Akil was working late because he had a lucrative side job. By day he fulfilled his official role, running one of the nations most trusted institutions while presenting the face of an impartial judge. By night he peddled his verdicts, negotiating with litigants who sought to buy his decisions for cash. Akil had become a part of the corrupt system he was supposed to police. Waiting for Akil, sitting on a bench next to the manicured bushes on his terrace, was a businessman with four envelopes underneath his shirt stuffed with a total of $250,000 in U.S. and Singapore currency. He was accompanied by an austere woman wearing a hijab and spectacles, a member of parliament who had brokered the deal about to go down. But as soon as Akil stepped out of his front door, more

Boom and bust cycle of deep-sea trawling unsustainable, study finds "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Fishing in the remote waters of the deep sea isnt easy. But with technological advancements, fishing boats have pushed farther and deeper into the oceans, frequently using bottom trawl gear giant fishing nets weighted down with metal attachments that drag along the seafloor to scoop up huge amounts of fish from depths of up to 2,000 meters (6,560 feet). Deep-sea trawling, however, can be extremely destructive for fish populations, while providing minimal economic benefits, researchers have found. Catches from deep-sea trawling are also grossly underreported, the researchers conclude in a new study published in Frontiers in Marine Science. Considering that the search for fishable resources, though partly buffered by some recent regulatory positions is progressively moving deeper and deeper, the picture that emerges from this study is definitely worrying, Antonio Pusceddu, professor of ecology at the University of Cagliari, Italy, who was not involved in the study, told Mongabay. Pacific sleeper shark. Image by NOAA. Bottom-trawling in the deep sea likely unsustainable Between 1950 and 2015, bottom trawls caught about 25 million tons of 72 fish species at depths greater than 400 meters (1,310 feet), the researchers found. Many of these fisheries followed a boom and bust pattern, with fish harvests first thriving, then quickly crashing. This shows that deep-sea bottom-trawled fisheries are not sustainable, lead author Lissette Victorero, a doctoral student at the National Oceanography Centre, U.K., told Mongabay. Most of them last only a decade or two. Additionally, this cycle is so rapid that the management and

Dog Who Lost Family In Hurricane Maria Can't Believe She's Seeing Them Again "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Daya's life, like those of many dogs, was thrown into disarray when Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico last September. She'd gotten separated from her family and, as weeks turned to months, it must have seemed as though she'd be lost forever.

Recently, however, Daya's family, who have since moved to Massachusetts, learned that Daya had finally been found. She was being flown to the mainland and driven to meet them at Second Chance Animal Services, near their new home.

Daya, of course, had no idea who would be awaiting her.

"She was really shy," Diane Tillotson, marketing manager for the shelter, told The Dodo. But then Daya recognized a familiar scent, and that all changed.

The moment the nervous little dog realized it was her family, she was absolutely ecstatic.

The happy reunion was made possible by Puerto Rico Animal Unite and the St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, who arranged the transport needed to get Daya, and many dogs like her, back home where they belong.

Knife-Wielding Seal Pup Sends A Sad And Shocking Message "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There is no shortage of images depicting the threats ocean pollution poses to marine life. But while the problem can feel too immense to grasp, and its victims too easy to overlook, the imperiled animal in this case isn't just anyone.

She's among the last of her kind on the planet.

This is Manu'iwa, an endangered Hawaiian monk seal. Her birth in the wild on the Big Island of Hawaii last February made headlines, and for good reason she's now just one of three seals in existence there. (Elsewhere, her species' population is composed of only about 1,400 individuals.)

The seal pup's progress has been closely monitored by the Marine Mammal Center since her happy arrival, and people have been respectful of conservationists' urging them to keep their distance from her. Manu'iwa seemed to be thriving.

But recently, Manu'iwa found something that threatened her life in an instant.

Credit: Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources

"Last Sunday the people observing the seal spotted it playing with a bright orange object in its mouth," Hawaii's Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) wrote online. "As they watched the seal dive beneath near-shore rocks and come back up, they realized Manu'iwa was holding a knife in [her] mouth by its handle."

A DLNR officer captured the shocking scene on video.

Manu'iwa was oblivious to the dangers of the object she'd found an object apparently left behind or discarded by some neglectful person.

It was feared that the playful seal pup might swallow the blade, but fortunately she did not. Eventually, Manuiwa drop...

Dog Abandoned Because Of His Face Finds Mom Who Thinks He's Perfect "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Beaux Tox has a face thats hard to forget. His perpetually pensive, deeply wrinkled forehead seems at odds with his wagging tail and happy-go-lucky attitude.

Credit: Jamie Hulit

Some might be put off by Beauxs unique look, but for Jamie Hulit, a single photo was all it took to convince her that the yellow Labs life was worth saving.

A friend of mine posted a picture of Beaux on Facebook saying he needed a foster or to be adopted anything, Hulit told The Dodo. That day I sent him a message saying, I would love to take that dog in and give him a home.

Credit: Jamie Hulit

Beaux has stood out since before he was born. With little room to grow in his moms womb due to his six brothers and sisters, he developed a sunken cranium and close-set eyes, according to Hulit.

He just kind of got pushed out of the way, and formed how he formed, Hulit noted, but it has nothing to do with his intelligence. An MRI confirmed that the head deformity did not affect his personality or his chances at living a long, healthy life, she said.

Credit: Jamie Hulit

Beaux's early years were difficult nonetheless. Because of his facial deformity, the people who were breeding couldnt sell him, Hulit said. So they gave him away for free. A man who lived nearby in Austin, Texas, took in the odd little puppy, but when Beaux Tox, named Lucky at the time, didnt get along with the mans cats, he was banished to the backyard, according to Hulit.

For five years, the gentle dog remained outside, Hulit said, severely neglected by his owner and all alone without even a dog bed for comfort.

In a letter, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urged Cuomo and legislative leaders to close a loophole in New York's double jeopardy law shielding recipients of presidential pardons from state prosecution. A change could make it more difficult for Trump aides and others who might be pardoned to escape criminal prosecution, even if special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election were curbed or shut down.

Unfortunately, in this case, we have one sub-contractor who is playing the game and we are not interested in their games, we are interested in their work and they need to get on with it, Andrew Constance told ABC radio on Thursday.

We want to see it (the project) delivered in 2019 as per the project deed. It is vital that ALTRAC accelerate and get on with their program. We have businesses and residents being hurt by their actions and inactions, he later told 2GB.

Last week, Premier Gladys Berejiklian insisted it was her intention to have the light rail running some time in 2019, despite a messy contractual dispute and looming court battle.

A Spanish subcontractor responsible for building the project claims Transport for NSW engaged in misleading or deceptive conduct in relation to the contract for the 12-kilometre network from Circular Quay to Kingsford and Randwick.

In its statement of claim filed last Friday in the NSW Supreme Court, the company Acciona Infrastructure Australia is seeking more than $1....

Five Eyes demand action on Russia hacking "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

LONDON AAP

Russias cyber warfare attacks on the United Kingdom and its links to chemical weapons have prompted four countries in the Five Eyes security alliance to demand action.

The prime ministers of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK met in London to discuss cyber security, and Russias attacks in particular.

The cooperation between our nations allowed us to trace Februarys NotPetya hack to Russia, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in the meeting on Wednesday local time.

Russia is using cyber as part of a wider effort to attack and undermine the international system.

Its interference over the past year has included attacks on the public sector, media, telecommunications and energy sectors.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said illegal conduct from Russia cannot be tolerated.

Whether it is a chemical attack in Syria, the use of a nerve agent on British soil, or the expanding cyber attacks across the internet these must be resisted, they must be protected, they must be identified, Mr Turnbull told the meeting.

Mrs May said Russia is using disinformation campaigns to distort the truth of what happened in chemical weapons attacks in Salisbury and in Syria.

I have been clear to Russia that we know what it is doing. And we should be in no doubt that such cyber warfare is one of the great challenges of our time, she said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the four nations, who along with the United States make up the Five Eyes security alliance, stood in solidarity with the UK.

Dog Who Lost Her Puppies Is The Best Mom To Her New 'Babies' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A pug named Fergie spent the first seven years of her life at a puppy mill, trapped in a tiny cage, producing litter after litter of puppies only to have them taken away from her immediately. During these seven years she lost an eye, went mostly blind and deaf, and developed deformed feet, terrible arthritis and many other health issues but somehow, she never gave up hope, and stayed the sweetest dog throughout it all. 

Credit: Instagram/fergiemamathepug

When Fergie could no longer give birth to any more puppies, she was abandoned and taken in by West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove, Illinois. The poor dog was so shut down when she arrived at the shelter, all she could do was sit in the back of her kennel and shake. She refused to eat or do much of anything at all, and so the shelter found a foster home for her, hoping that having a quiet home would help her relax and come out of her shell a little bit. 

She changed the minute she got in the door, Jenny, Fergies foster mom, told The Dodo. First night she was scared but the next morning she was completely different.

Once Fergie realized she was finally safe, she began to thrive in her foster home, bonding quickly with her bulldog foster siblings. She loved bossing them around and always being by their sides, and quickly became very protective of them. She also claimed three toys as her own as soon as she arrived in her foster home, and refused to play with any other toys. The three toys became her babies babies that finally wouldnt be taken away from her before she was ready.

Since ramping up their appearances on Fox, the quality has gone down somewhat. However, this appearance on Jesse Watters show brought them back to full steam. I have inserted a very germane comment in the middle of this interview. [insert] [insert the 4th Amendment] Excuse me for butting in here, however there is a much more important point to be made here. Heres what the 4th Amendment the 4th of the first 10 amendments that make up whats known as the Bill of Rights has to say on this subject. Article [IV] (Amendment 4 - Search and Seizure) The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. This is really basic to what makes America special. During the revolution, British forces would bust into houses and lawyers offices and ransack papers looking for evidence of crimes. No! Thats not the way it works. Thats not why we fought for our freedom. This break-in by the FBI was COMPLETELY unconstitutional barring a specific laundry list of the evidence of probable crimes. It seems that the FBI has had some sort of a problem in the recent past with providing honest probable cause to facilitate legal warrants being issued. One would think that the FBI would be extra careful not to cross any lines at this point in their history, but the current folks still in charge dont care. They are arrogant and reckless in their willful ignorance of our laws and Constitution. They will risk anything, even time in jail in order to nail President Trump. Well, so be it.

Sadly, Hoonies owner recently died, leaving Hoonie without a home. The owners daughter initially took Hoonie in, but unfortunately, both she and her own daughter are allergic to cats, and they couldnt keep him. So Hoonie and his stuffed cat went to a shelter run by Alley Cat Rescue in Maryland.

Thousands in US will not pay up on tax day because it funds war "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A group of activists, who are openly refusing to pay their taxes to the IRS, are instead donating the money to humanitarian programs. As the United States military and its allies continue to escalate conflicts in Syria and throughout the Middle East, an anti-war group is carrying out nationwide protests on Tax Day to oppose war funding. The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC), made a statement last week calling for an end to war and proposing a massive movement of tax resistance. The organization has coordinated Tax Day protests since 1983 and their message is more important now than it has ever been. According to the group's website: "The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee supports individuals who refuse to pay for war, and promotes war tax resistance in the context of a broad range of nonviolent strategies for social change. Through the redirection of our tax dollars, war tax resisters contribute directly to the struggle for peace and justice for all. NWTRCC is a coalition of local, regional, and national groups and individuals from across the United States. For everyone interested in or actively refusing to pay taxes for war, NWTRCC offers information, referral, support, resources, publicity, campaign sponsorship, and connection to an international network of conscientious objectors to war taxes."

When a pit bull named Frankie was just a puppy, he was a beloved part of the auto body shop where his owner worked. But as Frankie got bigger and his needs became the needs of a big dog with a lot of energy, his life got more and more restricted.

The public shelter refused to put Toby down, and instead contacted the SPCA, which took him in right away. The SPCA started giving him the medical care he needed to get him ready to find a new home.

SDR IF Experiments "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The R820T tuner IC is used in the popular Airspy software defined radio (SDR) as well as many of the inexpensive RTL SDR dongles. [TLeconte] did some experiments on intermediate frequency (IF) configuration of the chip, and youll find his results interesting.

Using 5 million samples per second and the devices real mode, the tests look at a what comes out when the IC reads a noise source. There are two registers that set the IF parameters, but the tests show the effects these registers have in precise terms.

According to the post, there are three things you can set:

  • Coarse IF filter bandwidth : narrow/mid/large
  • Manual fine tuning IF filter bandwidth from 0 (large) to 15 (narrow)
  • High pass filter frequency from 0 (high) to 15 (low)

Some of the settings dont make sense at least at the 5 MHz sample rate because of aliasing. However, it is instructive to see what each setting does. [TLeconte] uses Octave to visualize the data.

If you want to know more about SDR in general, we have something to get you started. If you want to do your own testing, consider using GNU Radio.

Statistics show cost of Northern Territory Governments failure to keep election promise "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Statistics released this week reveal the Gunner Government is sending more men and women to prison than ever before a direct result of Chief Minister Gunners failure to repeal mandatory sentencing laws.

The Corrections Departments figures for April 2018 reveal 1,833 prisoners were locked up across the Territory. The situation is dire in Alice Springs, which has capacity for around 500 people but currently has 642 prisoners - 142 more than there is room for. The Northern Territory has by far the highest rate of imprisonment in Australia.

Shahleena Musk, Senior Lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre, said that the numbers show a grave crisis of mass-imprisonment that the Gunner Government can and should commit to fixing.

These terrifying statistics paint a picture of an unfair and damaging criminal justice system that is geared towards separating families and communities and locking people up in dead end prisons. With the stroke of a pen the Gunner Government can begin to turn the tide on this crisis by repealing mandatory sentencing laws, said Ms Musk.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are locked up at significantly higher rates than non-Indigenous people in the NT. Just last month the Australian Law Reform Commissions report on the over-imprisonment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples found that laws like the Northern Territorys mandatory sentencing are disproportionately used against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Mandatory sentencing forces people into prisons even where this defies common sense. There is no room for mandatory sentencing in a modern and fair justice system. The Gunner Government can today choose to cut the number of people, particularly Aboriginal people, being siphoned into the quicksand of the criminal justice system by wiping these unfair laws from the statute book, said Ms Musk.

The statistics also show an increase in women being forced into prisons, the majority being mothers. Alarmingly, women are being held in small units inside the over-crowded and male-dominated prisons.

Most women in prison have children and locking them up causes profound upheaval broken families, children moved into child protection, and the loss of housing and employment. Locking women up in male prisons is dangerous. Two independent reports in 2017 urged the Government to find safer accommodation for women, in facilities that allow them to keep their families together and live with their kids, said Ms Musk.

It is clear that he recognizes the capitulation and subsequent capture of Trumps Presidencyand is reacting accordingly.

Russian Navy warship heading for combat near Syria sails towards English Channel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

RUSSIAN Navy frigate deployed to take part in military operations near Syria has been pictured cruising through the Baltic Sea towards the UK.

The Yaroslav Murdy, an Neustrashimy-class frigate equipped with anti-ship missiles, is about to pass Britain alongside the Lena, an Uder-class oil tanker.

Vladimir Putin has sent the vessels to the Mediterranean, where they will participate in combat training tasks, including anti-aircraft and anti-submarine drills, the Russian Navy has said.

Russia has a large naval presence in the Mediterranean in order to support Syrian President bashar al-Assad in the almost decade-long civil war.

The Yaroslav Murdy and the Lena are expected to pass through the English Channel and the Strait of Dover after leaving a seaport in Baltiysk, Kaliningrad.

Pictures posted by Russian Navy monitors on Wednesday show both vessels sailing westbound past the Storeblts Bridge off the coast of Denmark.

Members-Only Newsletter Preview: Lets See Disneys CEO Live In A Motel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Editors Note

Were pleased to publish this preview of our members-only newsletter, Keeping The Issues Alive, which provides a closer look at the stories were following at Shadowproof. Subscriptions start at $9/month to subscribe, visit https://shadowproof.substack.com/subscribe

Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, made $37 million last year. A $52 billion deal with Rupert Murdochs 21st Century Fox granted Iger $100 million worth of stock. It raised his annual compensation, including bonuses and stock grants, to $48 million.

Meanwhile, Disney World and Disneyland workers are living in and out of motels or homeless shelters. They are getting by paycheck to paycheck and demand a living wage of $15, which Iger and his company refuse to pay.

Thirty-six thousand unionized Disney workers claim the company is denying them $1,000 bonuses, which were to be offered as a result of tax cuts. However, the company is holding the bonuses hostage until contract negotiations are resolved.

Journalist Michael Sainato recently spoke with several Disney workers and published his report at Shadowproof. He also covered the unionizing efforts of workers at one Burgerville location in Portland, which we published.

We asked Sainato to share more of his thoughts on these workers struggles happening in the United States.

Disney workers describing life in motels because they are paid poverty wages was one of the more stunning parts of your report. How common is this in the United States?

Budget motels are a last refuge for people with nowhere else to go. There isnt a lot of data on the number of people living out of motels, but there have been a lot of reports on how these motels are becoming more popular in areas with a lack of affordable housing and impacting low-income workers in a wide variety of professions.

One aspect your reports on Burgerville workers and Disney workes have in common is the fact that workers are so vulnerable to workplace retaliation, especially if they organize or speak out. What has to happen to protect t...

Rural round-up "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Zespri says Gold3 licensing tender to generated as much as $195M in 2018  Rebecca Howard:

 (BusinessDesk) Zespri Group said corporate revenue from the 2018 allocation of the Gold3 license release will be $190 million to $195 million, or around $253,000-to-$260,000 per hectare, a figure that is up on the prior year.

The range is the combined revenue estimate resulting from 700 hectares of Gold3 licence, and 50 hectares of Gold3 Organic new development licence, both released under a closed tender bid mechanism, New Zealands statutory kiwifruit exporter said in a release. The validation process for all bids is still ongoing and all bidders will be notified of their outcome from May 1. . . .

Water quality results show pleasing improvements:

Federated Farmers says all the hard work being done to improve our freshwater quality is starting to pay off.

The release of the National River Water Quality Trends by Land, Air, Water Aotearoa (LAWA) show that many more sites are improving than deteriorating for all the river water quality parameters monitored over a 10 year period.

There are lots of good things going on, both urban and rural, to help improve the quality of our waterways, Federated Farmers water and environment spokesperson Chris Allen says.

It is very good news. To see that the effort being made is starting to show results. . .

What can we plausibly hope for with North Korea? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column, here is one excerpt:

First: The North Korean regime has never been bureaucratized in the modern sense of that term. While we dont have comprehensive information, it seems that until recently Kim as leader had not been going abroad, nor had he been receiving many visits from other heads of state. His position and perhaps his mood has been one of extreme isolation, and he is not surrounded by anything resembling the U.S. State Department or even the old-style Soviet bureaucracies that managed foreign policy for the USSR. The rest of his regime is probably poorly informed about the extent of American military superiority, should a conflict come to pass.

By meeting with other foreign leaders, the North Korean regime would be forced to build up its basic processes for dealing with the rest of the world. That in turn creates interest groups and flows of information (some of which invariably leak out). The North Korean populace responds by thinking more about the outside world, making it harder to control by propaganda. In turn the North Korean leadership may decide to continue economic liberalization.

One need not count on an End of History story culminating in liberalism and democratization. The more modest hope would be for the North Korean leadership to become more decentralized, more bureaucratic, better informed and harder to marshal behind crazy military measures.

The unspoken goal of engagement would be to encourage North Korea to evolve into a more banal and more predictable form. That is the natural flow of most bureaucratic organizations, so in this regard American negotiators actually have time on their side. The North Koreans are going to change a lot more than the U.S. is likely to.

And the concluding sentence:

Think of any diplomatic talks with North Korea as a big act of theater designed not to fool him, but to teach him that theater itself can be fun.

Treaty to Formally End Korean War Is Being Discussed, South Confirms | 18 April 2018 | South Korea confirmed on Wednesday that it had been in talks with American and North Korean officials about negotiating a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War after more than 60 years, as the United States and its ally try to establish a basis for persuading the North to give up its nuclear weapons. Chung Eui-yong, the national security adviser to President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, said he had discussed the matter with John R. Bolton, his newly appointed American counterpart, in Washington last week, as they prepared for the planned talks between each of their countries' presidents and Kim Jong-un, North Korea's leader. South Korean officials said they had also been in talks with the North about a possible treaty.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is expected to issue the order in an effort to pressure the agency into granting access so lawmakers can review the seven memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote last year documenting his interactions with President Trump, according to two sources familiar with the matter. The chairman on Wednesday notified the ranking Democrat, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), that a subpoena is forthcoming.

Warming, not cooling, donated livers may improve transplants "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WASHINGTON (AP) Surgeons pack donated organs on ice while racing them to transplant patients but it may be time for a warmer approach. British researchers said Wednesday that keeping at least some livers at body temperature instead may work better.

The livers keep functioning until theyre transplanted thanks to a machine that pumps them full of blood and nutrients. Its a life-support system for the organs, and similar machines are being explored for lung and heart transplants, too.

The transplant community isnt ditching affordable ice chests for the far pricier approach just yet. But proponents hope that storing organs in a way that mimics the body might eventually increase the number of transplants by keeping precious donations usable for longer periods, and allowing use of some that today get thrown away.

Horse Couple From Viral Video Reunites In Time For Tiniest Surprise "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When a famous wild horse named Goliath reunited with his mate, Red Lady, after six months apart, it was hard to imagine their story could have a happier ending but there's been a new development at the Oregon sanctuary where they live. 

After the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) had separated the couple during the course of its usual roundups of wild horses last year, so many people worked to make sure the couple could get back together. "Goliath had lived his whole life in the wild with a close family of mares and babies he had over the years," Clare Staples, founder and president of Skydog Ranch, a sanctuary for horses, told The Dodo earlier this year. "Last October, the horses were chased by helicopters with their babies into pens and then the families were torn apart."

Through several near-miracles and a lot of help from people who donated even a few dollars here and there, Staples managed to bring both Goliath and Red Lady to her sanctuary and people cried as they witnessed the couple reuniting in March.

"Goliath spotted her and ran half a mile to her side in the snow," Staples said. "She trotted to him, tail high, floating through the snow, and he immediately put his nose to her belly as if he knew she was carrying his baby." 

Credit: Skydog Ranch

Goliath's intuition was right: Red Lady was pregnant. And this week, the reunited couple who very nearly got separated forever got to welcome their little foal to the world together. 

"It is truly hard to describe this journey we have been on together," Staples wrote on Saturday, the day the foal was born. "We reunited them over a month ago and it was truly the most beautiful thing to see them recognize each other and they have not been apart from each other since. And then this morning their last foal together was born to give this story an e...

Bear Spent 9 Years Living In 'Hell Hole' Next To Restaurant "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

April the bear was 9 years old, and shed been living inside a concrete pit for her entire life. At the top of the pit was a metal grille, and April had to grip onto the bars and hoist herself up to get a glimpse of the sky.

Rescuers described Aprils cage as a hell hole.

April was actually being kept next to a restaurant in Armenia to amuse customers but neither the restaurant owner nor the patrons paid much attention to her. They occasionally threw her scraps of food, which is how she managed to survive for so many years. But that was the most care she was given.

But two weeks ago, Aprils life changed forever when rescuers arrived to free her.

Last October, team members from International Animal Rescue (IAR) and the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC) launched a project called the Great Bear Rescue, which aims to free all bears from captivity around Armenia.

Like April, many of these bears are displayed as attractions next to restaurants, while others are exhibited at bus depots, tourist hot spots or private properties. In January, the team even found a starving bear locked up in a dark warehouse.

Israel celebrates Pyrrhic Victory as it turns 70 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It appears Israelis have every reason to be in festive mood this week as they celebrate the 70th anniversary of their states founding.

This Independence Day, which Israel marks according to the Hebrew calendar, on April 19, the regional, security and diplomatic environment looks to be the most favourable Israel has faced in its short history.

The Palestinians have been crushed, and Israel faces no international pressure to concede a two-state solution. The Arab states are in disarray, with growing signs that Saudi Arabia and some other Gulf states may be ready to normalise relations.

The Trump administration is little more than a cheerleader for Israel, and has pre-empted Palestinian ambitions for statehood by moving its embassy to Jerusalem next month.

And Israel has one of the few economies that is thriving despite the global recession sparked by the financial meltdown a decade ago.

Nonetheless, analysts warn, the picture over the coming decades may prove to be far less rosey than it appears now. The relatively free hand Israel currently enjoys comes with new costs and dangers, they argue.

This is more like a pyrrhic victory, Amal Jamal, a politics professor at Tel Aviv University, told Al Jazeera.

Israel has won this round of the battle, but at a price it probably cant afford in the coming rounds.

The end of the Jewish state

That sentiment is shared in unlikely places. Last month Israels popular Yedioth Aharonoth daily published the assessments of six former heads of Israels spy agency Mossad, headlined: The country is in grave condition.

One, Dani Yatom, went so far as to predict the end of the Jewish state. Another, Nahum Admoni, warned that the rift within the Israeli Jewish public was greater than at any other time in Israels history.

Michal Warschawski, an Israeli analyst and founder of the Alternative Information Centre, argued that Israel was suffering from classic hubris.

Israel is strong, rich and has powerful allies. That explains its extreme arrogance at the moment, he told Al Jazeera.

We are now in a strange situation in which the security apparatus has more insight into Israels problems than the politicians.

An indication of Israels troubles ahead are the popular, unarmed protests that have exploded on to the Palestinian political scene along Gazas perimeter fence.

For decades Israels internal security has been carefully built on an intricate system of containing, isolating and repressing Palestinians with walls, checkpoints and blockades.

But the Gaza protests suggest to some observers that Israels compl...

Keep Saying No "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

No one is doing their job to protect the people of Pennsylvania. Were out here on our own. Elise Gerhart sounds stressed and tired but resolute. She and her family have been battling the Mariner East 2 pipeline for more than two years through both legal and direct action. In 2016, the pipeline resistance camp known as Camp White Pine began deploying tree-sits in trees marked for clearing. Going up against Sunoco and their subsidiary, Energy Transfer Partners, the same company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline has been intensely taxing, in all senses of that word. Surveillance drones and helicopters, private security thugs, legal threats and action, character assassination, death threats and mysterious visitors to the Gerharts home have become the norm.

When Elise says theyre out there on their own its true both literally and figuratively. The Gerharts and the people going to camp to support are fighting more than just a pipeline. Theyre fighting apathy, censorship, corruption and collusion as well. Without much media coverage and without any real help from officials and the legal system, the fight for people and planet is too often a lonely one. Its also very often remote away from the hustle and bustle of a city that could provide more visibility and pushback.

The area of Pennsylvania where Gerharts property and Camp White Pine sit is rural and deceptively picturesque. Home to the Marcellus Shale and the fracking boom it catalyzed, Pennsylvania is also home to rolling hills, streams, farms and fields dotted with little schoolyards and modest homes. When you look closely though, youll see the scars of the oil and gas industry. The rolling hills bear shaved ridges and yellow markers warning of pipelines underneath the surface. Hundreds of families with wells on their property get water delivered to their homes because their well water is varying shades of brown and foul-smelling. And those are only the families that could afford it. The others abandoned their homes. Stories of crops dying as soon as they were planted, sludge seeping into backyards and illnesses ranging from rashes to cancer are far too common. Whats also horrifyingly common is Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protections laissez-faire response. A 2017 report by Public Herald shows that of the drinking water complaints filed by PA residents, the DEP considers 94% to be wholly unrelated to the oil and gas industries. In other words, the DEP claims that the water of thousands of PA residents living close to fracking operations is being poisoned bygremlins? The DEP apparently sees no need to either answer that question or reign in the fracking industry thats always at the scene of...

45 Tiny, Matted Dogs Can't Believe They're Finally Getting Help "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Just looking at the group of filthy, matted dogs, it was clear no one had cared for them in a long time.

Kept in wire pens inside a British Columbia home, each of the 45 dogs were completely covered in a thick blanket of knotted fur, soaked in urine and feces.

The house where they were kept wasnt much better.

Credit: BC SPCA

Our staff had to use ventilators because they couldnt even breathe, Lorie Chortyk, community relations manager for British Columbia SPCA, told The Dodo. All of them were kept inside the house, so there were high levels of ammonia from the urine buildup.

The SPCA was tipped off about the home through an animal cruelty hotline, and after visiting the property, learned the dogs owner was a former breeder who hadnt sold any dogs for the past five years. The dogs she was keeping ranged from 1 to 15 years old.

Credit: BC SPCA

The dogs were admitted to the rescue last Thursday, where theyve been getting groomed, bathed and examined by veterinarians. The mats are so thick that most dogs will need to be fully shaved to be freed.

Credit: BC SPCA

Some dogs are also infected with ringworm, so theyre in quarantine until theyre no longer contagious. Others have severe dental disease from lack of care, which will require cleanings in the coming days.

Americas Dystopian Future "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Imagine a privatized America where rugged individualism reigns supreme within a vast network of corporate America, Inc., similar to 19th century wild west lifestyle, no social security, no Medicare, no Medicaid, no public law enforcement as individuals stand their own ground. Read all about it in Scott Ericksons The History of the Decline and Fall of Americas Dystopian Future, (Azaria Press, 2018).

Ericksons newly released semi-fictional satire of American history and subsequent decline into deepening pits of despair is a sure-fire treasure trove of Americana, at its best. Its a page-turner par excellence, rich in accurate textured American history and jam-packed with imagery of a dystopian future that is simply unavoidable based upon Americas character and development over the past two centuries. The dye was cast long before onset of dystopian existence.

The History of the Decline and Fall of America highlights and exposes inherent limitations of democratic capitalism whilst explaining in full living color a future American dystopia that is fully expected based upon Americas beginnings from the time of Captain John Smith at historic Jamestown (1607). The history lesson therein is superb, not missing a beat of what shaped America up to the final tipping point of neoliberal dogma and beyond into a deep dark world order.

That process of failure, the root causes, is what intrigues. For example, Americans were not only inventing a country but inventing what it meant to be an American.  Indeed, America came into being as a brand new experiment in capitalistic democracy. Within that quest for a new way forward, inclusive of equality and fraternity amongst equals, Erickson discovers and reveals unique American traits that belie that mission, leading to a neoliberal/privatization hellhole that goes horribly wrong.

That fascinating pathway is explained via enchanting quips, for example, de Tocquevilles remarkably astute comment: I know of no country, indeed, where the love of money has taken a stronger hold on the affections of men. This one isolated statement from the 1830s tells a tale of American character molded by artificiality of wealth creation simply for the sak...

Authorities said the womans boyfriend allegedly left the loaded gun in the car between the console and the seat, then he walked into Platos Closet in Merrillville, leaving his 21-year-old pregnant girlfriend sitting in the drivers seat in the parking lot with her children, ages 3 and 1, in the backseat.

Merrillville police chief Joseph Petruch said that the little girl got hold of the 9mm Glock 19 pistol while she was in the back of the car, and the weapon discharged, hitting her mother in the chest near the right shoulder. The bullet then went through the windshield. Shaneque Thomas, who is six weeks pregnant, got out of the car and collapsed.

[The girl] had no idea what she had done and she was very scared, Detective Sgt. James Bogner said.

An employee from Platos Closet said that she heard screaming.

We just heard screaming. We ran outside with a bunch of other people, Hadassah Zirkle said. Someone said someone was hurt and bleeding.

There was blood flowing all from her stomach; just coming out like water, like a faucet, and I screamed Someone call 911,' Zirkle added.

Menzo Brazier, the victims boyfriend, reportedly ran out of the store and tried to stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived, and seemed to think that it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He said, Did you kill yourself? Why did you do this to me? store employee Rebecca Todd recalled to WMAQ TV.

He rushed over, he was bawling his eyes out, her co-worker Paloma Prieto said.

Thomas was rushed to a local hospital and then airlifted to Loyola Medical Center where she is listed in critical but stable condition....

French President Macron Challenges Nationalism, Promises Reform of Islam and Stronger Copyright Laws "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

French president challenges 'inward-looking nationalist selfishness' in Europe:

Emmanuel Macron has outlined his vision for the future of the European Union in Strasbourg. The 40-year-old, who secured the French Presidency in May on a pro-EU platform amid a populist surge in the bloc, delivered his highly anticipated speech to over 700 MEPs in the European Parliament on Tuesday.

Macron challenged "inward-looking nationalist selfishness" amid populist sentiment in the bloc and pushed for a more united and reinvigorated Europe. "Nationalism will lead Europe into the abyss. We see authoritarianism rising all around us," he said. "The response should not be authoritarian democracy but the authority of democracy."

Macron also sought to tackle the "poisoned debate" on migration, proposing the creation of a European programme that could subsidise local authorities which host and integrate refugees.

In a speech which touched on a range of issues, Macron recommended that copyright law be tightened to protect artists' "genius" and reiterated his support for tougher environmental legislation.

Meanwhile, Macron wants to "reform" Islam:

Speaking alongside the flag-draped coffin of a police officer killed in a terrorist attack in southern France, President Emmanuel Macron last month lay blame on "underground Islamism" and those who "indoctrinate on our soil and corrupt daily." The attack added further urgency to a project already in the works: Macron has embarked on a controversial quest to change Islam in France with the goal of integration but also preventing radicalization.

He has said that in the coming months he will announce "a blueprint for the whole organization" of Islam. And those trying to anticipate what that will look like are turning their attention to Hakim El Karoui, a leading voice on how Islamic traditions fit within French culture.

It's hard to miss that the man who appears to have Macron's ear on this most sensit...

FixedIt: Child abuse charges are not a sex case "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The UK Business Insider reported on the closing remarks in the Melbourne Magistrates Court hearing on the child sexual abuse charges against Cardinal George Pell and described the case as asex case.

Cardinal Pell strongly denies the charges against him. This commentary has nothing to do with his guilt or innocence, which must be determined by the court. This is only about how the charges are described in the media.

Children cannot have sex. Sex requires consent, children cannot legally or morally give consent so it is not sex. Rape, sexual abuse and sex are not the same thing and they can not be used interchangeably in headlines.

Here are the reasons this matters, in every case, with every headline.

The victim impact statements from child abuse trials are harrowing, a testament to the lifelong injuries suffered by people who were sexually abused as children. They are the litany of drug addition, alcohol dependence, gambling problems, depression, crippling anxiety, relationship breakdowns, suicidal thoughts, shame, self-hatred, mistrust of others and long term emotional damage so common in survivors of child sexual abuse. Children who have been abused are also significantly more likely to suffer further abuse, both as children and as adults.

The effects of sexual abuse of children then lead to the cycle of horror where victims become unreliable witnesses to their own abuse.

When the media, as it so persistently does, labels sexual abuse of children as child sex, we are weakening the public understanding of the extent and effect of such abuse. This has serious effects. A study conducted for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse found that juries who have a better understanding of the facts of child sexual abuse are less likely to make mistakes in their assessment of evidence given in court.

Children cannot have sex with adults. Sex requires consent and children, by definition, cannot give consent, so its not sex. Its rape, its child abuse, its sexual abuse, its any number of terms that accurately describe a crime. An act perpetrated on an innocent victim, someone who was unable to defend themselves from the violence done to them, and who suffers for years, possibly decades, from the trauma caused by an adults choice to commit that violence.

New Zealand pledges US$1 million to support Bougainville referendum "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

UNDP

Port Moresby, 18 April 2018  The Government of New Zealand has strengthened its support to the National Government of Papua New Guinea (PNG), the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through a one-million-dollar (US) contribution to UNDPs Bougainville Referendum Support Project (BRSP).
Endorsed by both governments at the Joint Supervisory Body meeting of December 2017, the BRSP aims to support the Bougainville Referendum Commission (BRC) to deliver an effective referendum.
The BRSP will assist the BRC through technical expertise, the procurement of operational items such as voter registration equipment, and outreach activities including the production and distribution of awareness materials. The project will also conduct training of media and other key partners on their respective roles in the referendum process.  
The project will coordinate closely with activities funded by the UN Peacebuilding Fund and other international partners to support the National Government of PNG and the ABG not only to hold a successful referendum, but also transition peacefully through the post-referendum period.
The United Nations Resident Coordinator for Papua New Guinea, Gianluca Rampolla, said: The United Nations continues to work with both the National Government of PNG and the ABG on the implementation of the Bougainville Peace Agreement, and the successful staging of the referendum constitutes a significant aspect of this work.
We are incredibly privileged to have a supporter such as New Zealand, and we look forward to furthering this relationship.

Tools of the trade: Australias new investment in global health R&D "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The global market for medical products is shaped mainly by the demands of wealthy consumers. It rarely calls into being the tools needed to combat diseases that afflict primarily poor countries therapeutics, diagnostics and vaccines, as well as technologies that prevent the spread of disease such as insecticide-treated bed nets. Where such products do exist, its often down to the needs of tourists and soldiers and those products tend to fail over time as microbes and vectors evolve to evade our defences.

At the same time, governments and publicly or philanthropically funded research institutions generally do not have all the expertise required to discover, develop and create production pathways for such products.

Thats where Product Development Partnerships (PDPs) come in. PDPs are lean, not-for-profit public health intermediary organisations. They catalyse the discovery and development of global health products by bringing together public and private sector research and development expertise across a broad portfolio of product candidates. Some candidates succeed, some fall by the wayside.

The net effect of the 16 major PDPs work over the past two decades has been an impressive reinvigoration of the pipeline of tools for global health. Most importantly, a growing number of these tools have been approved for use, are under consideration by regulatory agencies, or are in late-stage trials.

When the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Julie Bishop, launched Australias Health Security Initiative for the Indo-Pacific region in October 2017, she announced that Australia would commit $75 million over five years to support the work of PDPs from 2018. This represents the Australian aid programs single largest commitment to global health research and development, and a 50% increase in PDP funding in annual terms.

FixedIt: A woman, a man and a baby were murdered "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Queensland Times reported that a man who impregnated his then 18 year old daughter murdered his duaghter, their baby and her adoptive father before killing himself. Not only does the man who committed all these murders not even get a mention in the headline, the murders themselves arent even there.

Invisible perpetrators are a constant in FixedIt. This is not a trivial issue. It matters because headlines are supposed to be a short summary of the article and when the article is about violence men commit against women and those men are invisible, the headline is not telling the story, its erasing the story.

Also, most people dont consume news by reading a print newspaper from cover to cover. Only some people go directly to the home page of a news outlet. Most people get news links from social media, and the most likely source is Facebook. But regardless of the source, we see far more headlines than we click on.

Something like 80 percent of the headlines we see, we never click through to read the article. Were not necessarily thinking very much about the headlines we dont click on, but we see them. And without being consciously aware that its happening they are still describing something to us. When they fit our subconscious bias or when theyre underpinned myths about violence and repeat them over and over again, they reinforce them in our minds, but we dont really notice that its happening.

The things we dont notice are far more dangerous than the things we do notice.

Clarity in reporting and avoiding the passive voice and are among the first things journalists are taught. Which is why the constant use of passive voice and unclear reporting on violence against women stands out so much.

If all the violent crimes committed by men were reported in the active voice with the perpetrators and their crime as the subject of every headline, it would be overwhelming. Because it is overwhelming.

We are journalists and it is not our job to erase the truth so our audience is not made to feel uncomfortable. Our job is to describe what is happening in our society. And the sad truth is that around 90 percent of violent crimes are committed by men. Avoiding this fact doesnt make it less true but it does make it much more difficult to address the underlying cause.

Headlines matter and this is why FixedIt exists.

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the medias constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it even $5 a month makes a big difference please consider...

Giant group of octopus moms discovered in the deep sea "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Giant group of octopus moms discovered in the deep sea | 17 April 2018 | Two deep-sea expeditions have revealed a giant group of octopuses and their eggs in a place where they shouldn't be able to survive. "When I first saw the photos, I thought, 'They shouldn't be there! Not that deep and not that many of them!'" says Janet Voight, a zoologist at the Field Museum in Chicago and co-author of a paper on the octopuses published this month in the journal Deep Sea Research Part I. Nearly two miles deep in the Pacific Ocean and 100 miles off the coast of Costa Rica, scientists on two oceanographic cruises used subsea vehicles to explore the Dorado Outcrop, a rocky patch of seafloor formed of cooled and hardened lava from an underwater volcano. Geochemists explored the outcrop in a submersible, hoping to collect samples of the warm fluids that emerge from cracks in the rocks. They didn't count on finding dozens of octopuses huddled around those openings.

We (1) address this call to any and all abolitionists, anti-capitalists, angry workers, anarchists, inside and outside agitators, daytime dreamers and nighttime ner-do-wells. After several ongoing conversations and the most recent triangle autonomous assembly, we are proposing a series of decentralized daytime actions on May Day, prior to folks converging at the 6pm march starting at the new DPD HQ.

You could picket a shitty restaurant that has screwed you or your coworkers, drop a banner over a highway overpass, make a scene at the office of a real estate company profiting off of gentrification, flyer the names of people killed by the Durham jail, host a call-in day for a political prisoner needing extra support, or a hundred other ideas.

Days like May Day are a time for finding new accomplices, new tactics, and new ideasthink of it as practice, or as a very old, now very dead comrade once said, revolutionary gymnastics. So start talking with your friends, comrades, local organizations, etc., and make a plan! And by all means, take a pic, write a statement, and (safely!) blast it out in whatever social media avenues you have available. News throughout the day will be available on twitter via @NC_autonomy.

Why Blue Shirt is a Dickhead and Im Better at Pub Crawls Than You "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Duuuude, the craziest thing happened the other day, Blue Shirt said in his typically slow and monotoned voice, before proceeding to tell the most un-crazy story in human history.

It was day two, and Blue Shirt had already made himself out to be a huge tool. Throughout Europe, Ive found hostels will often give a free room and board to fun, outgoing individuals in exchange for their smile, natural friendliness and good humour. Sometimes, if the hostels offer one, these are the people who will lead the pub crawl. This is based on the premise that the chosen ones will generally increase the vibe within the hostel and make it others time there more enjoyable. This is a premise that I agree with, and people who do this job can make a travel experience phenomenally better.

Blue Shirt was one of these types, except, he had been there for one week and he sucked at his job. Ive never understood people who are tight with other peoples money. I dont mean stealing from your employer and dishing it out to your friends; I mean like Blue Shirt, whose job it was to walk around giving out watered-down shot glasses full of vodka and some godforsaken fruit juice.

Never before has a glass 1.5 fl oz cylinder yielded someone so much faux power. Blue Shirt thought he had control over the Seven Kingdoms as he strutted from dorm to dorm dishing out the sweet syrupy concoction. He would look at us with a contemptuous face, refusing us a second shot, despite having done the rounds of the dorms and returning to the common room with a half-full tray still left.

Its a phenomenon my mate Andy calls the BNOC. It stands for the Big Name On Campus, which I guess is ironic because people who are dubbed the BNOC are likely to have never been big name on any campus at any point in their lives. The sudden and minor power gifted to Blue Shirt by way of his hostel volunteer position had given him some sense of self-importance far beyond its reality.

He was in stark contrast to the volunteers I had met in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania: people who engaged and talked to the fresh faces entering the common room and made everyone feel accepted and welcome. It wasnt until I first hit the road myself that I realised so many introverts travelled. The ability for one outgoing person to reach out to others can lift the mood of a room tenfold, whether its a time-passing game of cards or beers in the kitchen.

So it was a Thursday night and the Pink Panther Hostel was having a themed pre-drinks night something to do with Polish karaoke songs from a very niche e...

FixedIt: Allegedly punching a woman in the head is not just a legal issue "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ESPN reported that the Santa Clara County District Attorneys Office announced last Thursday that it was charging Reuben Foster with felony counts of domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possession of an assault weapon. He allegedly punched his girlfriend in the head between eight and ten times.

Foster played football for the San Francisco 49ers. He has reportedly been suspended until the charges against him are heard in court. It is reasonable for a sports report to include or even lead with this. Theyre reporting on sport not crime. It is not reasonable to completely erase the nature of his alleged crimes from the headline.

Professional athletes have been protected from consequences for violence against women for a long time. As a New York Times article from 2003 pointed out, The difference in these results for athletes and non-athletes indicates something is working to the advantage of the athletes over their accusers. The athletes social environment provides him with both protection and support. Accused athletes have money, powerful lawyers, public relations specialists, high-profile coaches and other popular personalities to come to their defense.

Hiding the crimes footballers are accused of is part of the culture of protecting these athletes.

This is not a trivial issue. It matters because headlines are supposed to be a short summary of the article and when the article is about violence men commit against women and those men are invisible, the headline is not telling the story, its erasing the story.

Also, most people dont consume news by reading a print newspaper from cover to cover. Only some people go directly to the home page of a news outlet.

Marble And Mud "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We got some chemical plants but didn't scratch Assad's marble floor

-by Dorothy Reik

Wars do not hurt the leaders of the battling countries but they do devastate the citizens. Doctors, lawyers, engineers, shop owners, taxi drivers, and especially children, lose everything. Men and women who had homes, cars, lives worth living, are turned into beggars pleading for refuge from strangers in strange lands or are warehoused in refugee camps awaiting their fates in muddy fields at the mercy of the elements in skimpy tents. We bombed Syria to punish Assad for using chemical weapons to kill his citizens instead of using bombs and you can see below how he suffered. His suit is freshly pressed, his tie is nattily tied, his shirt is whiter than white and no hair is out of place as he strides purposefully across his marble floor headed, no doubt, to a meeting to decide which of his citizens to kill next-- and how.

Ordinary Syrians forced from their homes...

HPR2534: Moving to Office 365 (and painting the ceiling) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A couple of weeks ago we moved to a new house and I had some time on my hands to talk to you guys while painting the ceiling. Moving was very much on the forefront of my mind since I also recently moved my company's Email platform to Office 365. As a cross platform slider with a foot in each major operating system I decided to give you my first impressions of the new platform (and upset the GNU-purists) with my review.

British OPCW has admitted that international chemical weapons inspectors were unable to confirm the origin of the nerve agent used in the Salisbury ex-spy poisoning. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

UKs representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Peter Wilson, said identifying the nerve agent is an essential part of the investigation, and that the OPCW has identified neither its origin nor the laboratory where it was produced.

But of course, while the identification of the nerve agent used is an essential piece of technical evidence in our investigation, neither DSTLs analysis, nor the OPCWs report, identifies the country or laboratory of origin of the agent used in this attack, he said.

The British government claims a Soviet-era nerve agent that has become known as Novichok was used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia and accused Russia of producing and deploying it.

However, the claims of Russian involvement have not been backed up by either Britains own scientists at the Porton Down laboratories or the OPCW, both of which say its not their job to apportion blame or identify the origin, but only the type of substance involved.

 

Wilson was speaking at a meeting of the OPCW in The Hague, which was called by Britain. The UK delegation reportedly said it would soon give some long-awaited answers posed by Moscow concerning the Skripal case.

The Russian embassy in London submitted a list of 14 questions on March 31. These asked why Moscow had been denied consular access to the Skripals, both Russian citizens. Moscow also asked the British Foreign Office why it had not been informed which antidote had been used to treat the Skripals, and how such a medicine had been made available to local doctors. It also inquired how the UK arrived at the conclusion that the agent used in the attack could only be of Russian origin.

In the latest statement to the OPCW, the UK says its accusations against Russia were based partly on credible open-source reporting and intelligence. So far, none of that material has been made public. The police investigation into the events in Salisbury is also still ongoing, but the government did not wait for Scotland Yards conclusions before insisting that it was highly likely that Russia was to blame for targeting the Skripals.

The Market Is Underpricing RiskAgain! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

So according to my calculus, currently, there is about 500 S&P points of downside risk (to the low end of my trading range) and 300 S&P points of risk to fair market value as compared to the upside of only approximately 150 S&P points.

We Need A New Sacrifice To The Aussie Altar Of Anzac Honesty "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its that time of year again, Anzac Day, when mainstream media, politicians and shock jocks find a whole new expression of honesty to be outraged at.

A couple of days ago, New Matilda journalist Ben Eltham sent out this tweet:

As most will recall, we have a brief but impressive history of flogging people for expressing truthful statements that dont align with the official Anzac myth. It all began in 2015 with the heinous anti-Australian Australian, Scott McIntyre, a former journalist with SBS who tweeted about atrocities committed by Anzacs during the war.

Remembering the summary execution, widespread rape and theft committed by these brave Anzacs in Egypt, Palestine and Japan, McIntyre accurately and outrageously wrote to his Twitter followers.

And then this: Not forgetting that the largest single-day terrorist attacks in history were committed by this nation & their allies in Hiroshima & Nagasaki.

A nation lost its shit, and McIntyre lost his job. As an aside, he had another crack in 2016.

In 2017, we found a whole new target controversial journalist Yassmin Abdel-Magied, who used April 25 to tweet: Lest. We. Forget. (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine.)

Abdel Magied wasnt just hounded out of her job she was hounded out of the country (and last week deported from the US for having the wrong visa).

But the woman Australia apparently most loves to hate appears not to have learned her lesson, if her response to Elthams tweet this week is anything to go by.

Abdel-Magieds response sparked this thoroughly...

Sketches In Australia By George Whitelaw, 1857-1864 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I was sort of watching an old episode of Antiques Roadshow ("watching" = noise in the background while I researched Oz history) when I heard the above title mentioned.
Now, poor George was a consumptive bloke ( he was quickly fading away from TB) so he had a little time to fill in.
The sketches in his book aren't fabulously long-lost works of art BUT they are observations of people and Aboriginal people in and around the small settlement of Melbourne; rudimentary ink drawings show mia-mias (huts) and Aboriginal figures with notes on the back of the sketch detailing how they lived.
He also sketched figures waltzing off to the goldfields, showing the various classes by their dress, with the usual accoutrements of digging in their hot little hands.
In short,  rare wonderful glimpses of history.
After the value was given by the Antiques Roadshow expert, with comments that it would garner high interest in the Aussie market, the owner stated he wouldn't be selling.
Now, doing my sums that episode was from 2009 (I told you it was an oldie) so I had a quick Gurgle to see if the sketchbook ever made its way to The Fair Isle of Oz - and, yes, it did!
Mossgreen Auctions in Armadale, Vic, auctioned it last May; how much or who bought it I have not the foggiest, I can only hope it or a facsimile eventually finds its way into the National Library or into print for schools or some such.

You can read a lengthy description by the auction house of George's sketch book  HERE
