On dodgy stats. Should number abuse be a criminal offence?

"We deserve to have statistical evidence presented in a fair and balanced way, and it’s only by public scrutiny and exposure that anything will ever change."

Help create wetland habitat! Less than five kilometres from Geelong lies an internationally significant wetland!

"Every year, thousands of birds flock to the former Moolap Salt Works site, home to long-distance migrants such as the Critically Endangered Curlew Sandpiper (featured) and Endangered Red Knot, along with well-loved Aussie species such as the Red-capped Plover and Blue-winged Parrot.

This unlikely biodiversity hotspot has become an important urban refuge for some of Australia’s most threatened birds, including our migratory shorebirds. These ‘creatures of habit’ return to the same site each year and cannot easily find a new home if this site is lost.

An opportunity to create Victoria’s first International Bird Sanctuary

The State Government is currently considering future land-uses for the former saltworks site at Moolap. This presents an exciting opportunity for Geelong to become home to Victoria’s first International Bird Sanctuary similar to that declared in Adelaide in 2014."

Appreciation for a job well done is important for all workers, and you don't need to be a manager to say "thanks" to others.

Imagine this: You enter the bathroom at work and you notice acleaning person wiping down the sink. Their back is turned to you. What would you do next? A) Quietly go about your business. B) Say “hello.” C) Thank them for cleaning the bathroom. D) Any of the above, depending on your mood or the exact circumstances.

Worth reading - the benefits of being polite.

Most people don’t notice I’m polite, which is sort of the point. I don’t look polite. I am big and droopy and need a haircut. No soul would…

An explanation of SA electricity pricing and the role of big business:

"South Australians deserve a sensible discussion of these issues, but instead they’ve had nothing but hysteria blaming these problems on their nation-leading wind industry. So let’s have a look at what is actually happening in the SA electricity market.

Neither the Treasurer, Arrium, nor anyone else has bothered to explain to SA taxpayers why Pelican Point wasn’t fully operating in the first place, since it is the most efficient, lowest emission thermal generator in Australia. It has been on go-slow for several years because it couldn’t compete with low electricity prices and had “reputedly” sold its gas off to the export market.

Pelican Point’s owners were able to sell their gas to the export market because several gas companies, including Santos, have built gas export facilities in Queensland that link Australia’s eastern gas market to higher-priced Asian markets, with the first exports in 2014 .

The link to the export market is one of the main causes of higher gas prices and Pelican Point’s go-slow. Santos knows this. In fact they claimed that they weren’t too worried about profitability of their export terminal, because they really wanted to use it to increase domestic gas prices all along .

Energy providers say they want to see a competitive marketplace, but the truth is they’re not so keen on having to compete for profit, writes Rod Campbell. Last weekend I went snorkelling with Australian Giant Cuttlefish and watched them mate in the waters off Whyalla, South Australia. These threatened, intelligent creatures get hot and steamyMore

Story
Introduction
I'm working into retirement and discovering new, and re-discovering old interests. I'm enjoying point and press photography and writing for my blogs on diverse issues including workplace bullying, communication skills, environmental sustainability, Career Development, retirement lifestyle planning, and mindfulness meditation.

MBTI preferences are INTJ

Tedious, but it seems necessary: If you come to one of my posts on climate and refer to scientists as 'hucksters' and their work as witchcraft I will block you. If you profess to be a climate skeptic I will refer you to reputable scientific work or links. If you then come back within an hour pretending to have read and understood the articles and try to dispute their findings with me, I will block you. If you consider that refuting reputable science with links to self serving blog articles, and cherry picked morsels of data, that's fine, but I'm not interested - keep your opinion on your own thread - I don't willingly, or knowingly spread misinformation.
Bragging rights
In my early 20's I was inspired by a talk by Sir Edmund Hilary and eventually trekked in Nepal. I suffered from hypothermia and was frustrated that I couldn't make it to the Base Camp of Mt Everest. Completed two Great Victorian Bike rides and one WA Margaret River bike ride. Each around 500km over a week or so. Was in Berlin in 2009 for the very moving reenactment of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
