+Andrew Pam Nah, it's anything that covers or blocks my ears. Shitloads better since I got the wisdom teeth out, but apparently my inner and middle ears aren't quite normal.

113 Gordon St Footscray

Warning If you or anyone you know sees this advertised as a share house, that is a scam. It is an unregistered rooming house with multiple violations of the residential tenancies act including not lodging cash bonds which are never returned to residents. The place is being investigated by Consumer Affairs, Maribyrnong council, the ATO, Centrelink and other relevant bodies. The police are regularly in attendance because of the abusive behaviour of the on site landlord.

It is advertised on Flatmates.com as a share house and has been reported as a scam there too. The guy openly boasts that he has been doing this for years, preying on back packets, students, non citizens and welfare recipients. He is proud that he is on a pension and making enough dirty money to buy two houses. He is an aggressive, abusive predator.

Something to remember in connection with the fight against fracking.
 
"Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Wave Hill walk-off, when 200 Aboriginal stockmen and their families walked off Wave Hill Station, 600 kilometres south of Darwin, demanding better working and living conditions."

Fifty years ago the Gurindji went on strike and made history.

Crayons, meh. Having been born to an arty family, it was the giant tins of Derwent pencils that I pined for.

After Blacklist finished I was a bit stuck, fortunately Netflix pinged me Longmire. I really enjoyed it. Sort of Justified meets Jack Reacher.

www.netflix.com/title/70269479?source=android

So Longmire went for four seasons and the next one is coming out in September, a day after the next episode of Blacklist.

In the meantime I'm watching Crossing Lines because William Fichtner and Donald Sutherland. A far cry from my sci fi preference, but what can you do? Everyone's all zombies, vampires or cops and robbers these days. You'd think the ISPs with unlimited bandwidth options would wrangle some package deal so folks could binge on sci fi without the bullshit and without having to back up terabytes of data because some people are shitheads.

Just a reminder: The new seasons of Longmire & Blacklist start on the 22nd & 23rd of September, respectively.

Carbon sequestration, leave it in the ground. Renewable tech is racing ahead in leaps and bounds.
 
The future is here. Coal is dead.

Quote, my emphasis:

In last week’s energy auction, Chile accepted a bid from Spanish developerSolarpack Corp. Tecnologica for 120 megawatts of solar at the stunning price of $29.10 per megawatt-hour (2.91 cents per kilowatt-hour or kwh). This beats the 2.99 cents/kwh bid Dubai received recently for 800 megawatts. For context, the average residential price for electricity in the United States is 12 cents per kilowatt-hour.

Bottom line: while the Australian government signs deals with Indian coal miner Adani for the biggest coal mine anywhere in Queensland, then needs to build massive rail to the coast to service it, we could be starting solar in the Simpson Desert and building future-proof transmission lines to the main grid.
Our politicians are dinosaurs.

Was given a 23andme DNA test for my birthday. Now the family are all jumping up and down wanting to know what it's going to turn up. It's exciting.

I appreciate the reminder though. It's better practice.
