The leader of Australia, +Malcolm Turnbull now has a G+ presence.
This is what I told him,
(Tony Abbott was the previous leader of Australia, be was a moronic, sexist idiot in case you don't know)
+Malcolm Turnbull, thanks for the chance to communicate.
Tony Abbot believed in the idiocy that carbon is weightless, he even opposed a weight based tax on Carbon believing it was weightless. I believed you were better than that, but belief must have some fact in order to be maintained.
Your border protection policy has resulted in the raping of a 5 year old child.
The fact that you can accept that means we will never be equal".

I don't know how long the comment will remain, but my loathing of raping 5 year olds lasts a very, very long time...beyond even the next election.
Should anyone want to express a view about how raping 5 year olds is good border protection feel free to write.
+Pam Adger I already know your policy on Aussies mouthing off at Americans about stuff, trust me we are ruled by morons too.

+Michael Ringland Hi Michael. You're right about the shouters. Their narrative is slowly unravelling to reveal the truth.

You pose a logical point that they probably should be under our protection. I disagree however about whether they have broken laws. Arriving without a visa, permit etc is against the law. Its against the law in a number of countries as well. Paying criminals tens of thousands of dollars to take a boat here I am sure is against the law (or at least it should be) and I support the govt's policy on if you come by boat you will not be resettled here. It allows us to accept refugees we choose who are following our processes and laws to be granted a new life here. They typically are the ones who can't afford thousands of dollars in people smuggling fees. Who didn't fly from their countries of origin, transited through countries to our north with passports but mysteriously lost their documents between here and Indonesia. The tough border policies also allowed us to increase our refugee intake.

I believe the people in detention now are what is left over from the mess of the Rudd / Gillard years and their numbers are dropping.

Our involvement in the middle east stretches back to well before George W. Still, that is no excuse for these people trying to arrive by boat circumventing the legal process.

Onto the child getting raped, that is abhorrent along with any rape. This is where the waters get very muddy. With all the bleeding heart lawyers spinning up stories to the media that are either not true or not entirely true who knows what is really going on in these places and what the govts actions are? There was a case not so long ago where a woman in detention got raped and became pregnant. There was this dickhead lawyer who made all kinds of accusations of the govt mishandling the whole thing and every one of then turned out to be false. But the damage was done.

I will take this opportunity to tell you that in islam rape is common and under sharia law raping non muslims is acceptable. This is what the europeans are finding out now.

Cheers for the encouragment with my weight. I am already feeling my pants and belt getting looser. Happy days.

Oh and happy chinese new year for tomorrow.

This is a spine.
Let me know when you get one.
Raping a 5 year old is not what I consider "Border Protection'

OK there is a problem with upper trapezius tension, generally caused by holding your head too far forward.
This particular problem can be relieved by increasing the strength in your lower trapezius (google it).
What really annoys me is the article contains this quote, indicating complete and utter ignorance of human physiology.
"The pain occurs because the small blood vessels are squeezed between tensed muscles and obstruct the supply of oxygen to your brain. The lack of oxygen in the brain triggers headaches and other bodily pains. Massaging significantly reduces and alleviates symptoms of irritation or muscle fatigue."
Be warned of the "expert" massage therapist
 
Using dragging technique massage for upper back tension is simple and can be done anytime, anywhere you may be. #backpain

+Olivier Malinur a fall and dislocation almost always goes with a rotator cuff tear, a full thickness tear (needs an MRI to be sure) will never repair, needs surgery...but if you can move the shoulder it's probably a partial tear. Will repair but needs strengthening.

No network coverage, with Vodafone....I ring and am very polite, (I've learned). I get to tell my story only twice after 3 minutes.
Some guy says the whole state is having trouble, but he's doing his best. I say, mate the sooner you get off the phone with me the sooner you can fix the problem.
1 minute after he hangs up, network coverage back.
My services are available for a small fee.

It's a little lengthy, but here's the central theme. The American Association for the Advancement of Science says .... 
“ The science is quite clear: crop improvement by the modern molecular techniques of biotechnology is safe… The World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the British Royal Society, and every other respected organization that has examined the evidence has come to the same conclusion: consuming foods containing ingredients derived from GM crops is no riskier than consuming the same foods containing ingredients from crop plants modified by conventional plant improvement techniques.” -

There is no money in helping starving or malnourished sick people and the shareholders agree. Golden rice hasn't been very successful and the bananas are not very productive in the field. They were modified with beta-carotene and others have added vitamin A. The few articles in the professional horticulture magazines that I have read lately suggest that they are giving up on them.

I wrote a rant on post surgical knee rehabilitation, as I do...and was asked for this as a post.

+Gary Ray R here's a tip..be prepared.
At the start you won't be allowed to put much weight through the operated knee, you sort of stick it out in front and then get up from chairs.
Did I tell you, getting up from a beanbag chair, or where bum is below knee can put 800% body weight through the knee, now it's titanium and won't break...but you will. So
a) learn how to get up from chairs with the crook knee straight.
There is an art to the task known as
"sit to stand"...I spent a semester learning it.
a) wiggle forward on the chair, but keep your feet well back (well not the operated one OK)
b) bring your shoulders so far forward you'd imagine you'll fall flat on your face.
c) at the moment (or just prior to the moment) you're about to fall flat on your face initiate the movement known as "lift off".
d) don't fall forward, it makes me look bad.
Get a chair that is high, or some firm pillows and make that chair "MY FUCKING CHAIR" (I'm Aussie and swearing comes natural).
Think about a raised toilet seat, pride goes before the fall, and it's easier, = less painful if the bum is higher when standing.
Anytime exercising the not crook leg, especially that little tiny bit called "lift off" will be time well spent.
Remember the first two weeks are shit', the next two are unbearable, week 5 there is light at the end of the tunnel and by week 6 you're back in the surgeons office saying "I should have done this years ago"
Good luck... : )

There is lots on G+, people doing politics, trolls trolling on and on.
I'm into science based medicine, after a life of listening to naturopathic bullshit I get to relive it here, I rant about posture, gardening, golf and grandparenting...but Mykal keeps doing his thing.
If you have not checked him out, he does beauty. And he does it masterfully.
 
A story from 2014. Dubai Marina.

Have a great weekend. :)

Dubai Marina - Jet Lag, BAH HUM BUG

Alarm goes off at 1am Sydney time on the 31st March then head hits the pillow just after 1am 1st April Dubai time. With no sleep during the 14hr 20min flight, thats a total of 32hrs on the go.

Jet lag, BAH HUM BUG…. we’ve got a city to explore.

The Dubai Marina was just a short walk from our hotel so I took the opportunity to test out the @108977422735122571732  OMD EM5 with the Oly 12mm f2 lens at night. The lights on the edge of this building were slowly moving up and down so a 4 sec exposure was enough to capture it midway through its cycle at maximum length. Of course I had it mounted to a tripod and triggered with a remote shutter to reduce vibration. This lens has become my default night time / low light shooter for handheld images. A task my D7000 couldn’t complete and that’s why I left it at home.

The cameras Dianne Hall   has in her bag are the Samsung Galaxy Camera and a Nikon D90. The latter is rarely used as she prefers the portability and ease of use. I think this trip has turned her into a Jpeg shooter :( I need to pass on my EM5 to her and swing her back to RAW. This will now happen when we get back home thanks to an incident in Florence……..but that’s for another post.  :(  :)))) I have taken the Olympus OMD EM5 and the Panasonic TZ40 point and shoot, as recommended at the time of purchase as a great travel companion by +Gordon Laing  on www.cameralabs.com .  I can say it has lived up to all expectations. Having a good P+S with fantastic zoom abilities has been a fun experience as I found out in Malta.

As our 3 month long Europe vacation is now more than half completed, I have a stack of images to process and post. We have been enjoying the late sunset times here by having late dinners and even later bedtimes. Averaging 1am heads on pillows and lights out which makes photo editing a little difficult. This holiday was a vacation first and photography journey second. Trying to find the right balance between the two can be tricky at times but I have stuck to our goals. Spending quality time with +Dianne Hall is a dream come true and a moment that i’ll never forget. The travel bug has bitten us both so there will be more adventures both vacation and PHOTOGRAPHY TOURS in the near future. :))))

The rain has stopped and the sun has poked through the clouds so it’s time to explore the Britanny region of France. This will be the last image from Dubai and next up it’s Malta’s turn.

The science behind GM foods is confusing, basically we are being fed a pile of shit.
Examine the sandwich by going to a reliable source, lets say Scientific America...and ask them.

Proponents of genetically modified crops say the technology is the only way to feed a warming, increasingly populous world. Critics say we tamper with nature at our peril. Who is right?

Geez mate, stone the flamin' crows.
Australia has 6 states and 3 (three) territories. 3 not 2 OK ?
(well there are external territories but let's not go there)
There's bets to be won on this, but you'll need google to back you up.

The fact that I lied to my primary school students on this haunts me, not to mention the fact that I was lied to.

Here's the truth....

Story
Tagline
Evidence based medicine was my training, so was teaching kids to read. Now I'm old and happy. Don't pity me, I'm beyond pity.
Introduction
I am a father, husband, carer to some. I wish for world peace and a nice dinner. I drink too much red wine, enjoy making pasta, and growing my own vegetables I was a hippy about 40 years ago and still like making love, not war. If you post stuff about magical properties of healing, expect a rebuke. I might ask about religious opinion, but have no understanding of what it takes to believe, I'm strictly "evidence based"..and wonder why others are not.
