In this show we travel to Greece and Iran where people are suffering because of their political situation and borders.

In fact we are almost talking about the cause of refugees and the effects, what happens when you have to leave your country because of political turmoil and war.

We play an interview with Amin a refugee in the Moria camp on the Greek Island of Lesvos. This interview was done by Riot Turtle our correspondent who spent some time in Greece finding out about refugee issues (and more). Riot Turtle is from enoughisenough14.org.  Also mentioned as a way people are helping refugees is the Cars of Hope collective.

Over to Iran where the New Year saw mass protests around the country. The interview in this show was from a few weeks ago, now the number of people arrested is said to be 8000 and 50 are dead.

Linda interviewed Hafez Rahimi a Kurdish Iranian anarchist now living in England. He is from a group that has a number of social media sites.

Business Aviation Solutions Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 Bizjet VH-BLM Pops into Hamilton Island Airport "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Early on Tuesday 16 January, Business Aviation Solutions Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet VH-BLM was photographed by Brisbane plane spotter Brendan B as it departed the Gold Coast destined for Hamilton Island Airport.






After a very short time on the ground at Hamo, VH-BLM then departed to Townsville where it appears to have cleared 'Customs' obligations before continuing overseas to Bail (Denpasar) in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, in the late afternoon on Tuesday 16 January, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451"  was noted flying into Mackay Airport from Cairns.  It later departed to Brisbane on what appeared to be a medevac flight.

DoorDash Is Now Using Its Algorithm To Deliver Extra Food From Restaurants To Food Banks "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

When youre already delivering food, an extra stop to bring leftovers to the needy isnt that difficult.

Its the end of the day at Bodhi Bowl, a vegan restaurant in downtown L.A., and the chef has eight pounds of leftover rice. By law, it cant be served again the next day in the cafe. When the restaurant first opened in 2017, that extra rice would have been thrown outowner Alison Cruddas couldnt find a place to donate it. Now, however, she can use an app to contact the meal delivery company DoorDash whenever food is ready. A driver shows up and takes the food to the nearby shelter, Midnight Mission, to feed the homeless.

Novotel construction coincides with skyrocketing Spectacled Flying fox casualties in Cairns Library Colony "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Wildlife rescuer and carer, Rebecca Koller, has observed an unprecedented number of Spectacled flying fox casualties in a traditional breeding site located near a new hotel construction in Cairnes. The spectacled flying fox is a threatened species.[1] Despite many attempts to get the Australian government to investigate and or intervene, the government has failed to get back to her. This is even though the problem has received extensive publicity and the species is about to have its threatened status upgraded from vulnerable to endangered. The source of this article is correspondence between Ms Koller and The Australian Wildlife Protection Council.

On Wed, 3 Jan 2018 at 11:51 AM, Rebecca Koller wrote to Craig Thomson, the president of the Australian Wildlife Protection Council (AWPC), asking for his advice and or assistance based on his knowledge of our government and wildlife protection.

Ms Koller is a flying fox carer from Far North Queensland and the Wildlife advisor of the Cairns Flying Fox advisory board.

Here is the website she posts to: https://www.ouranimalsourearth.com/

She has been documenting the Spectacled flying fox deaths and orphans at the Cairns Library flying fox colony. Despite numerous attempts, she had received no communication from the Australian federal government regarding her requests for it to intervene or investigate the unprecedented number of pups from this breeding season found dead or orphaned.

The camp referred to carries about 4000 flying foxes. Ms Koller says that this is a huge reduction on previous seasons. Since September 15th 2017, there were 898 flying foxes dead or orphaned from this one camp, compared with 366 last season. In her opinion and that of other wildlife carers, the increased casualties are attributable to the construction work directly across from the roost trees.

Espresso & Matcha's Saporous Expedition - Sydney: Grounds of the City "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"


Having gone to the Grounds of Alexandria with Iron Fist, I was pleased to see them open a secondary store in the CBD, making it a lot easier for me to try out when I went with Queen V during our last trip. Conveniently situated in my favourite shopping mall, the Galleries, it was one of the few cafes that open early on a Sunday morning (we were particularly impressed at the online reservation system).

Plans for the year "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

Five books, basically.

After a shocker last year I just want to get my head down and write some novels. The long awaited Girl in Time sequel. The even longer awaited WW 3.1. Another space opera. My end of the world thingies. And a couple of conventional thrillers.

It would be a nice retreat from the world.

I suspect nice retreats from the world are going to be in high demand for the next few years.

I've written intro chapters and plot outlines for the two thrillers. I'm thinking about selling them locally, but retaining the overseas rights for myself. One thing I've recently learned, publishers are not keen to split print from ebook rights. They're starting to demand audio rights too, for no extra payment. But they're still locked into the old territorial model. So selling a title here, wouldn't preclude self publishing it overseas.

It'd be a bit of a dog's breakfast though. With retail prices of 14.99 in A/NZ and 4.99 globally.

So I dunno. I'll have to think on that some more.

No more full closures on Lions Rd "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

There will be no more full closures on the Lions Rd for bridgework, detours will be road-bike friendly, there will be a change in heavy vehicle traffic and Google will be asked to reroute through-traffic.

That is the pledge from Kyogle Council.

The popular motorcycle route on the Queensland/NSW border was closed all last year for bridgework.

The road opened again in December 2017, but there is now a dirt detour while the last three of seven wooden bridges are updated to modern two-lane concrete bridges.

Council spokesman Tony Lickiss says the 2km Gradys Creek Rd (or Low Rd) detour will only last until the end of March and then there will be no more full-road closures for bridgework.

While the detour is dirt, Tony says the surface has been graded and is suitable for road motorbikes and 2WD cars to traverse.

While the Low Road is gravel, it can accommodate most traffic, he says.

However it does have a number of causeways so it should be avoided during periods of wet weather.

While the road is safe for all bikes, it is understandable that some riders would prefer not to get gravel rash on their bike or dust on their chrome and in their engine where it is difficult to clean.

Heavy vehicle traffic

When the bridgework was announced in December 2016, Kyogle Council said it would help the local timber and cattle industry.

The original notice to resident in December 2016 stated:

Council received $2 million through the Australian Governments Bridge Renewal program to replace the timber bridges, five of which have load limits between 2 and 25 tonnes imposed on them. The load limits have impacted the timber, beef and tourism industries and increased emergency response times for emergency and essential services undertaking urgent call outs, maintenance and repairs.

Travelers, a thing I like. "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

There are some shows on the streamz that I have to take a sip at a time. Ozark, Breaking Bad, even Daredevil. There"s an intensity to them that precludes consuming the series in a long binge.

Travelers is the opposite. I have to stop myself watching back to back episodes so that I don"t rush through an entire season and find myself enraged that there"s no more to be had.

It"s on Netflix in Oz, so not everyone will have seen it, but for me it"s one of those shows that makes subscription TV worth the money. This is the sort of show that would've run on the Ten Network when it was cool. And they"d have destroyed it with ads and schedule changes and getting a couple of eps out of order because that"s how they roll.

The premise is cool. Time travelers are sent back from a doomed future to change the past. But they can"t return in corporeal form, only their minds can make the journey - into the host bodies of people already living here in the 21st century. (Or simply The 21st, as it"s known in the show). The transfer overwrites the original mind, effectively killing the host. Travelers are thus inserted into hosts who are about to die before their time.

It"s a neat narrative ploy which unfolds into ever more complicated origami forms of story telling as the show goes on. Characters can be "killed" simply by overwrite. It"s a great screen writer trick.

Eric McCormack (Will, in Will and Grace) leads the ensemble cast of travelers in his team, and does a great job. I never watched W&G so I had no trouble imagining him into the role of a very straight FBI agent-his relationship with his wife after overwriting is a key driver of the series. The other cast members fill out a Joss Whedon-style "band of five" and every episode sees them even some new mission by The Director, to save the future.

It sounds dumb, and it is magnificently, compellingly, addictively dumb and enormous fun because of it. Season One was a good set up. Season Two is much stronger, with real character development inside the team, a solid meta-narrative setting up a worthy nemesis within the mythology of the series, and lots of splodey goodness.

There"s always lots of splodey goodness.

I only have a couple of eps left and I"m already feeling pre-emptive withdrawal.

The Steel Syndicate "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

 

The Steele Syndicate is all about the groove. Steele McMahons Brisbane-based octet is raucous, punchy and fun, with a genre-bending sound that reimagines elements of old school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock.  The band packs a roaring four-piece horn section and a rhythm section to match, creating music from soulful, contemplative ballads to dance-inducing funk frenzies.

Since its formation in September 2015, The Steele Syndicate has entertained over 80,000 people at Sydneys City2Surf road run, played at the Sydney Opera House, Cairns Reef Hotel and Casino, Peregian Originals, NightQuarter and a host of Brisbanes best venues. The band is also breaking into the festival scene, appearing at the 2017 Gum Ball Music Festival, Newstead Roots Festival and headlining the Teneriffe Festival. Theyre a besuited instrument-hopping unit!

Packing the punch of its acclaimed live set into a record, The Steele Syndicate released its debut EP, Antipodes in August 2016. Since its release, the EP and lead single Where I Need To Be have received nationwide airplay on Triple J, local and community radio.

The Steele Syndicate has been back in the studio and is set to release a second EP in 2018.  With a number of national dates already in the calendar, the band looks forward to unleashing their evolved, energetic groove to new venues, new cities and new audiences in the months and years to come.

Recipe Round-Up: Eat Like You Give A Damn "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

This is my first round-up from Eat Like You Give A Damn, a fun cookbook written by Michelle Schwegmann and Josh Hooten of Portland's The Herbivore Clothing Company. This is a shiny little book, with lots of pictures and some tempting recipes. This round up will mostly look at breakfast recipes that I have made from it.

Herbivore's Tofu Scramble with Go-To Greens and Tahini Sauce: This tofu recipe is so simple, and is reminiscent of the amazing tofu served in Austin at Bouldin Creek Cafe. The tofu is coated with nutritional yeast and seasonings, and comes out with a great, crunchy, cheesy crust. The book has many options for their go-to greens, which are steam-fried, and I used silverbeet (swiss chard). I did have to drain it at the end, there was quite a lot of liquid. All topped with the amazing Tahini Sauce, which comes together so quickly and is amazing. When I made the sauce this time, I used smoked garlic, which added a great flavour.
Rating: Scramble :), Greens :), Sauce :D



Ranch Scramble with Cream Biscuits: This was a great, herby tofu scramble, with broccoli and tomato (though I could have done with even more vegetable!). When it is all cooked, the recipe says to top in the pan with some sour cream and cover, and it will melt into scramble. It didn't melt into it, I ended stirring it through. You can see I topped it with some more sour cream as well. The cream biscuits are very easy to make, using cashew cream or soy creamer. I used some soy creamer for these. The recipe makes 8 biscuits, I made a half recipe and shaped them into three biscuits, which cooked in 18 minutes. This served three people for brinner.

FixedIt: another invisible perpetrator allegedly stabs and assaults a woman "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Another invisible perpetrator. The Courier Mail reported that a 25 year old man has been charged with  one count each of grievous bodily harm, wounding, deprivation of liberty, and contravention of a domestic violence order. But he does not appear in the headline.

Invisible perpetrators are a constant in FixedIt. It matters because headlines are supposed to be a short summary of the article and when the article is about violence men commit or are accused of committing, the headline is not telling the story, its erasing the story

If all the violent crimes committed by men were reported in the active voice with the perpetrators and their crime as the subject of every headline, it would be overwhelming. Because it is overwhelming.

But we are journalists and it is not our job to erase the truth so our audience is not made to feel uncomfortable. Our job is to describe what is happening in our society. And the sad truth is that around 90 percent of violent crimes are committed by men. Avoiding this fact doesnt make it less true but it does make it much more difficult to address the underlying cause.

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the medias constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it even $5 a month makes a big difference please consider becoming a Patron

FixedIt: A case is not accused of stabbing a woman "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Another invisible alleged perpetrator, this one in the Toowoomba Chronicle.

A 34 year old man was charged with entering a premises with intent to commit an indictable offence, wilful damage and causing grievous bodily harm after he allegedly forced his way into a womans home and stabbed her.

He does not get a mention in the headline. If all you read was the headline you wouldnt even know he existed.

FixedIt: he was arrested and charged not hit by allegations "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

The Courier Mail reported that Damien Duncan Hooper allegedly kidnapped a woman, held her for two days, threatened her with a knife, strangled her, punched her in the face, burned her with a cigarette, pushed her out of a car, drove the car over her legs and threatened a child.

He was arrested and charged with deprivation of liberty, assault occasioning bodily harm, dangerous driving and other domestic violence charges, including wilful damage and strangulation.

The headline implies its horrifying he was subjected to these allegations, that he is the victim. He was hit by allegations, not arrested and charged after an allegedly monstrous assault on a woman and child.

It might be bad sentence construction. It might be that whoever wrote the headline wanted to make a pun about a boxer being hit (Domestic violence is so hilarious we need a pun in the headline? Really?). It might just be carelessness. Whatever reason for this travesty of a headline, it is inexcusable to imply a man charged with such an allegedly long and violent assault is the victim. Hes not.

Grassland fires that are deadly and devastating events for many kinds of wildlife are a boon to certain types of birds known as fire foragers. These opportunists prey on animals fleeing from a blaze, or scavenge the remains of creatures that succumbed to the flames and the smoke. But in Australia, some fire-foraging birds are also fire starters.

Three species of raptors are widely known not only for lurking on the fringes of fires but also for snatching up smoldering grasses or branches and using them to kindle fresh flames, to smoke out mammal and insect prey.
