Americans have thier system and we need to keep our from becoming like it. In the 21st century it is the governments DUTY to provide good basic health care at the lowest possible cost for all Australians. Private health care insurance in Australia is a racket established for the benefit of share holders and specialists who manipulate a twisted system for their own financial gain.  
LEAKED: Turnbull Govt radical plans to privatise $50 billion in Medicare services. Add your name to keep for-profit corporations out of our health system.

Brilliant camera ergonomics make the Xpro 1 one of the easiest digital cameras to adjust to. Anyone switching from a Leica will feel right at home with anXpro1 and get equally good image quality...
In my 5 years of Fuji X series ownership, I have owned two X100s and currently have an X-T1 that I love! However, I’ve always preferred the range finder style

The internet provides a level playing field, by allowing anyone online to take a course or start a business. For it to do so, however, everyone must have access to it. A new Google Fiber initiative will ensure that low-income families in US public housing get that access, via a superfast connection.

Peppermint Abstract No3. Another sample of the lovely little 45mm at ƒ4. Even on an overall shallow field the subject is sharp with nice subtlety in the tonal gradation and colour rendering. At under AUD300 this has got to be one of the best lens bargains around...

Great texture. I really do need to buy myself a 45mm, but I have so many film lenses around this focal length.

Sunset Smoke After a week of being surrounded by bushfires the sunsets are looking horrid with not a trace of blue sky. A big thanks to all the Victorian and New South Wales fire fighters that have flown over to Tasmania to help out.
