I can understand penalizing frivolous calls. But eviction for real emergencies is perverse.
 
In cities and towns across the country, little-known local laws penalize calls to the police and can get people kicked out of their homes. And it doesn’t matter whether people called the police for help or that they were the victim of the crime. <- my country. isn't that wonderful? #priorities   #bullshit

Seems a better test than "Life in the UK". 
The BBC's Laura Trevelyan, who has lived in the US for the past 12 years, is applying to become a US citizen. She recounts her efforts to study for the citizenship test.

I don't have much to say about this article except for this portion.

"Often migrants contact him from Qantas’ check in at Heathrow or JFK, asking about visas – after they’ve sold their house and packed up their life. "

How will such a person survive in a foreign country ... Or in their own country for that matter ?
Think working in Australia will be all beers in the sun and after-work surfing? Think again, writes Julian Lorkin

People need to be realistic. After reading about Australian work culture, it seems to have some similarities to Japan (although Japan is at a whole other level).

I also noticed that Australia's migration programme is quite easy to understand, and I believe that Australia is a great example to follow when it comes to migration.

On this day in history: 32 years ago today, on August 11th, 1984, President Reagan was preparing for his weekly radio address and having some fun with the sound check. The line was not actually broadcast (as legend had it), but did get leaked — which led to the Soviet Far East Army going onto high alert for 30 minutes.

"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."

Ah, for those innocent days of yore, where our biggest fear, if it came to pass, would all be over in about half an hour.
