Riding Safety  - 
 
Nice to see the local government starting to provide data on cycling accidents around here - even if the information is up for interpretation.
 
My only bugbear with this is the number of times police have refused to take my statement.

It has everything else though... self reporting portal, maps, heatmaps... good stuff!

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!

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.

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.

Food / Nutrition  - 
 
Anybody else getting confused about the different directions people talk about for nutrition? 

Eat carbohydrates, don't eat carbohydrates - high fat diets are awesome, high fat diets will kill you.  Sugar is a particular one in the news these days and I figure its ok in moderation, but the concept of 'moderation' is what is at play here.
I have a recipe book on my shelf titled ‘I Quit Sugar’. Many of you may also have a copy of it. Right next to it I have another book – ‘Don’t Quit Sugar’. Aaaargh. Eeeeep. What to do – quit sugar, ...

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.

A pet friendly cafe with excellent coffee and breakfasts. Nice place to chill with heaps of outdoor seating and quaint little rooms inside.

Pretty decent chicken and chips joint. Excellent chips - have them with vinegar or gravy and the chicken be either southern style or roasted. Not a particularly nice spot to suit down and eat but ok I guess.
