Its all in the enzyme!  The more you sit the more fat enters the bloodstream.  No wonder i want to get out and away from the desk
Put simply, albeit rather alarmingly, every hour spent sitting in front of the television takes 22 minutes from your life. And, no matter how much you exercise, the jury is still out on whether its effects counter those sedentary moments spent watching TV or, say, eating, driving, and, as many of us do for 40-plus hours each week, working at a desk.

Revelations of misconduct in National Australia Bank's financial advice arm have exposed significant gaps in the "breach reporting" system requiring banks to notify the corporate regulator of problems.

It's been quite some time since I used the Virgin lounge and I have to say it was exceptional. The service was without peer!

A pipeline dream perhaps, but I love the audacious nature. Very jfk
A Japanese company has promised to have a space elevator up and running by 2050.

What do people think about allowing bikes to treat traffic lights as give ways signs? and riding on footpaths?

I like some (in fact pretty much all of these proposals) with the exception being cyclists being prohibited from wearing headphones.  How is this worse than being cocooned away from the world with a ton of metal around you are wearing a motorcycle helmet which takes hearing away from you?
CYCLISTS could be permitted to run red lights and drivers be banned from entering bike lanes at all in a bid to get more riders on Victorian roads.

We don't have as many limited roads for trucks, because there'd be nowhere to go.
Usually the traffic signs are there because it would be physically impossible for a truck to maneuver (small streets, low bridges, etc) or in order to limit heavy traffic in small towns.

It's the kind of thing that as a non-truck driver you don't need to know, unless you need to give them directions.

Heck, it's the one thing that as a non-driver makes it difficult to tell anyone where to go because one way streets are often only that way for cars. And while that situation could be made into a generic law (allowing bikes to ignore that traffic sign) the fact that this generic exception is always indicated helps warn the rest of the traffic of the situation.

General Cloud Discussion  - 
 
I would like to see Government become "Cloud Focused"

Most large enterprises employ a hybrid of public and private cloud, with just 23% opting for an all-public strategy.  I am guessing that government departments - as a rule - would be classified as laggards in the adoption of cloud due to a traditional conservatism and a high aversion to risk.

Having said that though I see no reason why some departments cannot embrace elements of the cloud to drive down costs and increase productivity
  Those of us that expound the benefits of cloud services must calibrate our analysis and opinions with real world data about what actual operators of business IT systems are doing. Although logic and historical analogies may argue that utility IT services will inevitably displace most on-premise infrastructure, actual observation can [...]

I reckon we need this on the slopes of Parliament House.

"Crowds flock to giant water slide down city street" http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-14/perth-street-water-slide/5966226
A giant water slide down a main street in the Perth Central Business District is the first of its kind in Australia.

Electric bikes that are always connected (so the city can see where they are amongst other things) with tablets sounds like an overkill, but I like the idea that I could ride in summer without sweating.
These electric bikes eliminate almost every excuse you have not to ride.

Certainly nothing to rave about. I found the pancakes to be pretty average but the coffee was ok I guess

A great find in the heart of Goulburn. These guys saved my bacon when I had wheel problems on day one of a two day tour from Canberra to Lithgow. The service was good and the cafe next door fantastic. And they have plenty of gear over which I could drool...
