The first wireless flying robotic insect takes off "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Insect-sized flying robots could help with time-consuming tasks like surveying crop growth on large farms or sniffing out gas leaks. These robots soar by fluttering tiny wings because they are too small to use propellers, like those seen on their larger drone cousins. Small size is advantageous: These robots are cheap to make and can easily slip into tight places that are inaccessible to big drones.

But current flying robo-insects are still tethered to the ground. The electronics they need to power and control their wings are too heavy for these miniature robots to carry.

Now, engineers at the University of Washington have for the first time cut the cord and added a brain, allowing their RoboFly to take its first independent flaps. This might be one small flap for a robot, but its one giant leap for robot-kind. The team will present its findings May 23 at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Brisbane, Australia.

Humans are leaving their mark on the worlds protected areas, study finds "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Roads, ranches, mines and cities are spilling into many of the worlds parks, reserves and wilderness sanctuaries, leaving one-third of the worlds total protected area almost three and a half times the size of Alaska with the scars of heavy degradation. Thats one of the conclusions in a new study by ecologist James Watson and his colleagues, published May 17 in the journal Science. What were showing is at least one-third of the protected area estate is relatively worthless, Watson, with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, said in an interview. Giraffes walk past preparations for oil drilling in Uganda. Image by Paul Mulondo/WCS. Scientists know that protected areas form a critical line of defense against the extinction of species. Thats led governments around the world to set aside nearly 15 percent of the Earths surface for conservation, doubling the area of protected land since the adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity at a 1992 summit in Rio de Janeiro. The conservation community has applauded these gains, arguing that the world is ontrack to meet the goal of protecting 17 percent of the planets land by 2020, one of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets set in Japan in 2010. But in Watsons fieldwork around the globe, he has noticed that many of these protected areas arent giving biodiversity a break from humanity as intended, he said. I saw many, many protected areas just getting smashed, he said. So he and his colleagues set

Alfie Evans was injured by vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Vaccination, corruption and greed, the terrible trio destroying humanity. How can we allow this to continue? Can we kill this Beast, or must we separate ourselves from them? Can we continue to live in a society which destroys its young? With all the politicial and judicial processes in the maiming and death of little Alfie Evans in the UK. There was not one mention of the vaccines he was given.

How long can this continue without a rebellion and blood in the streets? Thats what our stupid and gutless politicians should be asking themselves, who took an oath under our Constitution for PEACE, ORDER AND GOOD GOVERNMENT and yet they are ruled by evil manipulators, behind the scenes, trying to create chaos, so they can bring in their New World Order, passing bribes, rewards, blackmail and threats, while the people on the streets try to get the truth out.

All that is needed is for the Prime Minister to issue an order for the abandoning of all vaccinations, immediately and the repealing of all Vaccine Laws.
But will they do it? No, probably because their lives are in danger, as is President Donald Trump.

So that is the current news of the day, that the mainstream media refuses to report, because their bosses are in on the game, while the vaccinated, fluoridated, brainwashed and drugged masses follow them into the future that will make the dark ages seem like a picnic.

WAKE UP
DO NOT VACCINATE
STOP DRINKING FLUORIDATED WATER.
STOP TAKING DRUGS, IT CAN BE DONE.
BE BRAVE AND DO SOMETHING TO SAVE YOURSELF
AND YOUR WORLD.

Bev Pattenden,

UK hospital kills baby with lethal injection "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

ANALYSIS: Alfie Evans was executed by lethal injection; Alder Hey hospital steeped in horrifying history of organ harvesting from human babies

Britain now holds the crown of Totalitarian State

Tuesday, May 01, 2018 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Watching in horror the health care murder of baby Alfie Evans over the last few days, Ive been gathering an array of stories and sources to bring you a detailed, definitive report of what actually went down. Until that full report is ready, however, it seems urgent to share with you the conclusion of my research: I am convinced that Baby Alfie Evans was executed by lethal injection, and the hospital that murdered him appears to be the center hub of a multi-decade baby organ harvesting crime ring that saw 100,000 baby body parts harvested and illegally held in hospitals all across Britain. (See multiple news sources, below.)

It has always been clear that the Alder Hey childrens hospital sought to accelerate the death of Alfie Evans while silencing his parents through a sustained attack consisting of threats and intimidation tactics. Now, Life Site News is report that Alfie Evans was injected with four different drugs by hospital staff just two hours before he died. This, of course, was after several days of being starved to death and denied water. Virtually the entire corporate-controlled media has withheld this information from the public for a variety of nefarious reasons that I will discuss in another post.

Senate committee wants referendum to repeal Sections 44 and 45 of Constitution "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

The Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters has today released its report into matters related to Section 44 of The Australian Constitution.

Committee Chairman Senator Linda Reynolds said the report found that s. 44 was becoming increasingly undemocratic and that future referrals to the High Court would be inevitable.

Problems with s. 44 are neither new, nor unforeseen, Senator Reynolds said.

Senator Linda Reynolds, Liberal Chairman of JSC on Electoral Matters wants to repeal section 44 of the Constitution, thus allowing a MP to sit while owing allegiance to another country.

20 years of Parliamentary Committee reports and a Constitutional Convention have all predicted that without constitutional reform to parts or all of s. 44, challenges would occur to otherwise qualified and validly elected Members of Parliament.

Problems with the operation of s. 44 have come to public attention over the past year as a result of the high number of s. 44(i) citizenship matters referred to by the High Court. While public discussion has been on these citizenship cases, two other sub sections of s. 44 were also the subject of High Court consideration.

Senator Reynolds said in addition to the previously identified problems with s. 44, recent High Court decisions have created new uncertainties and future oppor...

This report is from 1/5/18. Probably due to my computer incompetence,I unsuccessfully tried to send this report in after seeing the tattlers on 1st of May. Two wandering tattlers in breeding plumage observed walking around on the rocks in front of the headland at low tide, at 3:00pm, 1/5/18, at Froggys Beach. Full barring observed with binoculars but nasal groove not seen until viewing the photos. Photo taken by Geoff Rankin.

Engineering Firms Withdrawal From Adani Coal Project Should Be Final Nail In The Coffin, Says Greenpeace "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

One of the worlds largest engineering firms and a key partner in Indian company Adanis push to open up the Galilee basin in Queensland to coal mining has confirmed it is no longer involved in the controversial project, sparking celebrations among environmental campaigners.

Its another major blow to a proposed mining venture which has been plagued by problems, with major banks in Australia and around the world refusing to provide finance for what would be the largest coal mine in the Southern Hemisphere.

American engineering firm AECOM was the lead partner engaged to design a rail line to run from the Carmichael basin to the coast, providing a way to get the coal from inland Australia to the international market. The rail-line, if built, would also open up the entire Galilee Basin to coal mining, attracting other major mining players like Gina Rinehart. But the project has faced massive opposition from Traditional Owners and environmental groups its carbon footprint alone would unlock more emissions than small countries, such as New Zealand.

Yesterday, AECOM, an international corporation with assets worth almost $6 billion, confirmed it had demobilised from Adani Groups project, joining a growing list of partners and investors who have walked away from the venture.

HOUSE AD: NEW MATILDA RELIES ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY ON READER SUPPORT TO SURVIVE. YOU CAN CHIP IN TO OUR CROWDSOURCING CAMPAIGN HERE.

The deal lasted less than a year, after being signed in July 2017. Overnight, AECOMs share price jumped 1 per cent in the wake of the news.

Greenpeace Australia Pacific Campaigner Jonathan Moylan who made international headlines in 2013 after releasing a fake press release on behalf of ANZ bank announcing a withdrawal of financing for Whitehaven coal mine in the Hunter Valley of NSW suggested the latest blow to Adani should be fatal for the Carmichael coal mine.

This should serve as the final nail in the coffin for this environmentally and economically unsustainable project that most stakeholders have already walked away from, Greenpeace Australia Pacific Campaigner Jonathan Moylan said.

May 17 #OnThisDay in #Australian #History "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

1770 - Jimmy Cook spied the Glasshouse Mountains in QLD and named them in fond memory of the Yorkshire glass furnace chimneys.

1797 - Survivors of the wreck of the Sydney Cove passed through Illawarra, reaching Sydney on 17 May. They tell of finding coal in northern Illawarra and of being attacked by 'savage natives' near Red Point. In fact, it appears that some of the crew members were the savages and that they may have suffered attacks from members of their own party.

1813 - Two large Norfolk Pine Trees were presented to Mrs. Macquarie by ( a very, very reformed convict) Simeon Lord. They were removed from his garden, and planted at the Gate opposite to Macquarie Street

1824 - The Supreme Court of NSW was birthed.

1824 - A dinner was held at Government House to celebrate the great benefits that the opening of the Supreme Court would bring to the people described as "the inhabitants of Australasia."

1824 - Saxe Bannister became the first person to be admitted to practise as a barrister in New South Wales. His admission was concurrent with his being sworn into the office of attorney general of New
South Wales with a right of private practice at the first sitting of the Supreme Court.

1824 - At the NSW Courts Magistrates, Newcastle Police Court Andrew McColl, John McAuliff and Charles Fagan, runaways from Port Macquarie, were charged with attempting to break out of gaol after having ran from this settlement on the 4th of May, being retaken at Wallis Plains and sent back. The keeper of his Majestys Gaol states - I was going my rounds last night about 8 oclock and hearing an unusual noise in the room where the prisoners are confined in company with Samuel Hart (a notorious gaol breaker) now under committal for a trial for a burglary and William Halfpenny, under sentence for Corporal punishment. I suspected something wrong was going on amongst them. I procured the keys and examined the room. I discovered in one part of it a hole made large enough for a man to creep through. The hole had been made with the iron work of a tub in the room. They had destroyed the tub. The prisoners respectively deny having any knowledge of the hole or how or when it was made. Sentenced to 50 lashes each

1830 - George Thomson was hanged at Hobart for theft of silver plate and two pistols.

1832 - Those wrapping fish were in for a treat when the Sydney Herald became a bi-weekly paper. Price per copy dropped to sixpence!

1838 - Congregational Minister William Waterfield preached the first Congregational Church service in Melbourne to some fifty persons in the little wooden Church of England building in William Street.

1842 - Andrew Petrie fell over the Mary River.
