IAEA sees Areas for Enhancement in Australias Nuclear and Radiation Safety "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

IAEA Mission Says Australia Committed to Strengthening Nuclear and Radiation Safety, Sees Areas for Enhancement, IAEA, 52/2018, Melbourne, Australia An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team of experts said Australia is committed to strengthening its regulatory framework for nuclear and radiation safety. The team also noted areas for further enhancements, including implementation of the framework in a more consistent manner across the country.

The Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) team on 16 November concluded a 12-day mission to Australia. The mission was conducted at the request of the Government of Australia and hosted by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA), the Commonwealth Government regulator. Under Australias federal system of government, ARPANSA regulates Commonwealth entities and other entities are regulated within the six states and two territories. The majority of licenced activities in Australia are carried out within states and territories. This was the third IRRS mission to Australia since 2007 and the first to include all nine jurisdictions.

..The IRRS team commended the hosts for inviting a comprehensive review involving all jurisdictions in Australia, adding that it was the first such IRRS mission. The team identified this as a good practice and a model that other federal countries may want to consider when planning for future IRRS missions. Regarding the national framework, the team noted ongoing activities to address consistency in the countrys radiation safety programmes, but said further efforts were warranted in several areas

The team provided recommendations and suggestions for further enhancements, including:

  • All relevant authorities should consider formalizing the existing elements of the framework for safety into a comprehensive national policy and strategy for safety.
  • The Commonwealth Government should make a firm commitment and take actions with specific milestones to address decommissioning of facilities and radioactive waste management.
  • The Governments of all jurisdictions should ensure that all parties responsible for the safety of facilities and regulatory activities have the necessary capabilities and human resources to carry out their responsibilities.
  • ARPANSA should establish criteria to evaluate the effectiveness of licensees emergency exercises and assign roles and responsibilities for its staff during emergency sit...

Sunshine after no rain "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Queensland turns the corner

To look at the latest employment and unemployment figures you might things haven't been so bright for Queensland.

But these are lagging indicators, and business investment growth is now at the highest level in years, albeit coming off a low base. 

The latest state accounts for financial year 2018 released today showed gross state product up by 3.4 per cent - behind only Victoria of all the states - for the strongest result since 2011-12, while final demand in the Sunshine State was also up by 3 per cent. 

New South Wales saw its agricultural production hit by drought, slowing the state result. 


Source: ABS

Better still, business investment in Queensland recorded double digit growth at 10.6 per cent after a lean five years. 

Provided China keeps importing Australian coal in 2019, the period ahead should be brighter for profits and wages.

Gross income per capita grew in Queensland by 2.3 per cent after an awfully sluggish few years (nothing compared to the Canberra bubble, mind you!).

Election 2018: our scorecard "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

2014-2018 has seen significant public transport investment under Labor, and they have delivered on their major promises. But as Melbourne continues to grow, and demand for regional travel increases, the challenge ahead is to build a public transport network not only copes with patronage growth, but also provides usable services into areas which currently dont have them.

So how do the parties rank?

1. Greens in some ways the Greens have the least ambitious transport plan. But its full of affordable, commonsense policies. They are the only party to commit to the Metro 2 tunnel, and to frequency upgrades across the train, tram and bus networks essential for making the public transport network vastly more usable in the short term. Accelerating the rollout of low-floor trams and implementing on-road priority, extending metro services to outer suburbs with high capacity signalling are also important initiatives. The Greens also oppose the major road projects proposed by the other parties, rightly recognising that they will simply generate more traffic.

2. Labor some ambitious plans in starting the huge Suburban Rail Loop project, alongside continuing the successful Level Crossing Removal Program, and extensive upgrades planned elsewhere around the metro and regional rail networks. They lose points for construction of three major tollways/freeways, a lack of progress on bus and tram upgrades, and for lagging on the rollout of more frequent all-day metro train services essential for a big city such as Melbourne.

3. Coalition theyve backed away from what is probably their best policy, of metro trains every 10 minutes all day, leaving commitments to build three major tollways plus other freeways, and the messy grade separation of road intersections. More positive is commitments to extend metro trains to Clyde and Baxter. Their regional high speed rail plan is ambitious, but would only speed up trains moderately, and there are doubts over whether it could really be delivered in the timeframes promised.

Volunteers needed for run "IndyWatch Feed Geelong"

The regions newest community weekly run is seeking locals to help volunteer with the Ocean Grove parkrun.

The 5km Ocean Grove parkrun commences at 8am on Saturdays and meets at the Barwon Estuary Picnic area along Peers Crescent, which is adjacent to the Riverview Family Caravan Park.

The Ocean Grove parkrun course takes in the beautiful surrounds of the Barwon River with participants running two laps on a wide path with gravel and tarmac surfaces.

Ocean Grove parkrun celebrated its six-month anniversary in October and event co-director Graham Bignell said they were in need of more helpers for it to continue.

That is the bottom line if we dont get the volunteers we cant run it, Bignell said.

We have gone close to cancelling a couple of times you need a core set of volunteers.

The first Ocean Grove parkrun which launched in April this year attracted 247 participants.

Each week on average there are up to 70 participants per week which take part with volunteers ranging from five to 11.

The minimum team is five (volunteers) and that is without marshals on the end, he said.

Although it is better if something goes wrong you really need a marshal on the end of the course.

Seven volunteers is much better and also eight volunteers including a photographer.

Some other parkruns have their volunteer list full until the end of the year.

Bignell said the run was in need of more volunteers in December.

OCEAN Grove parkrun will take a five-week hiatus from late December and all of January due to peak summer holiday period and congestion flow around the Riverview Family Caravan Park precinct.

Bignell said the support of the Riverview Family Caravan Park helped when the Ocean Grove parkrun was launched.

They (Riverview) have been really helpful and we have talked to them, he said.

There is a couple of crossovers from the caravan park to river they have been supportive since the start.

We had a quite few people (participants) staying there on the launch date.

Ocean Groves final parkrun for 2018 is on 22 December before it resumes on 2 February in 2019.

Organisers have encouraged participants to visit nearby parkruns in the region during this time.

PARKRUN is worldwide with organised free weekly 5km timed runs taking place across Australia and around the globe.

In wider Geelong, they are weekly parkruns held on Saturday mornings at Eastern Gardens and also at Balyang Sanctuary in Geelong, Portarlington and Torquay.

Real Estate Taxes Currency "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

COMMENT: Dear Martin,

I bought The World Real Estate Report at the end of 2016. It stated that Australian real estate was going to fall after the first quarter (March) in 2016. The property prices in Melbourne (where I live) continued to rise in April 2016 so I sent an email to Socrates Support asking them when real estate should peak. I received the reply below, which stated that the peak was either in for global real estate or the latest by the end of the first quarter 2017.

Anyway, since I owned a tiny house in Melbourne, I was facing a difficult decision if I should sell or not since it would be impossible to buy back in if the prices continued to go up.

I have been reading your blog daily since 2012, and I have read all of your forecasts being correct (eg. the Dow continuing to go up, US Index going up, Brexit, Trump winning). I also bought your Gold report in 2014 and watched gold bottom (Dec 2015) correctly for the date and price on the first benchmark, truly an unbelievable forecast.

Based on your track record I decided to sell my property at the end of the first quarter (March 2017), for which I received a fantastic price.

Im happy to inform you that prices have been falling since the 3rd quarter of 2017.

I just wanted to congratulate you on another correct forecast.

REPLY: We all need a place to live. Governments are attacking real estate thinking it is too high and they need to make it more affordable for others to buy. They fail to understand that when they do that, the wipe out the savings dor retirement for others. Raising taxes to support government pensions is morally wrong and economically a disaster. There really should be some qualification to be a politician who them plays with peoples lives.

Whale carcass at Collendina "IndyWatch Feed Geelong"

Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) officers are responding to a dead whale that washed up on the beach at Collendina.

Members of the public reported seeing a whale carcass in shallow water this morning.

DELWP Regional Agency Commander Aimee Haywood said: Early indications suggest it is a humpback whale in an advanced state of decomposition.

Specialist DELWP personnel are on-site to assess the situation.

Our primary concern for public safety is around an expected increase in shark activity in the area.

Sharks are attracted to any site where there are decomposing carcasses, which poses a safety risk for anyone entering the water.

We strongly advise members of the public to avoid swimming in the area.

As this beach is also a popular site for dog walking, were reminding owners to keep their dogs on-lead and under control at all times.

Signage will be in place to warn of the hazards in the area.

Whale remains are protected by law and must not be interfered with.

We ask any beach goers to please keep their distance as the carcass is badly deteriorated and may be emitting harmful pathogens and a strong smell.

Water quality impacts due to the whales decomposition are unlikely.

An exclusion zone will be established around the carcass as wildlife officers determine if it is able to be moved.

For up to date advice and warnings please visit www.emv.vic.gov.au

Any sightings of whales in distress should be reported to the whale and dolphin emergency hotline on 1300 136 017.
