Sunshine after no rain "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

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!).

pale vented bush hen at Cornubia Forest Park, West Mt Cotton reported by Col and Chris Fitzell on 15-11-2018 "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

We had heard strange calls late at night for several days in a creek reserve near our home. We recorded them and were advised that it was a bush hen. Then the calls started about 5pm 15/11 so we clambered through the under growth to the creek and finally got good sighting and video of the bush hen with a bright coloured bill shield. About 15 years ago we had seen two adults and two chicks in the same vicinity so it is pleasing to see that they are still around.

Pachelbels Chicken: Your Favorite Classical Pieces Played Masterfully on a Rubber Chicken "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

Music lovers bracing against the annual onslaught of the Singing Dogs "Jingle Bells" may find their savage beasts soothed somewhat by Eddy Chens performance of Pachelbels Canon, above.

Never mind that the instrument on which he plays four different tracks is a rubber chicken or more accurately, as per Amazon, a Screaming Yellow Rubber Chicken Non Toxic Bite-resistant Squeaky Toy.

It retains its relaxing musicality. Chen, one half of Australian duo TwoSetViolin, plays that bird like the disciplined, classically-trained pro he is.




Classical chicken covers became a surprise hit for Chen and his partner, Brett Yang, veterans of the Sydney and Queensland Symphony Orchestras, whose virtually sold out world tour was the first of its kind to be entirely financed by Kickstarter donations.

The duo describes its mission as upholding the integrity of classical music while making it relevant to the modern generation through fun, humour and simplicity, noting, in a joint interview with Violinist.com:

There are people out there who are ready to love classical music, and we have to actively find them. It is the way classical music has been presented so far that makes it so austere. We were lucky that we learned the instrument for 20 years; if we were not musicians, it would be very hard to get into.

Everyone has the potential to like it, but sometimes musicians alienate and scare potential listeners with our pride.

Back when classical music was new, it was not 'classical'; it was just music.

Today our (classical music audience) is very small, but there are many great musicians

Camping at Tin Can Bay November 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Qld"


Black Bittern

An excellent haul of birds during a three-day camp-out to Tin Can Bay included Black Bittern, Radjah Shelduck, Broad-billed Sandpiper, Grey Plover, Sanderling, Eastern Ground-Parrot, Little Bronze Cuckoo and Shining Flycatcher. We camped at the Tin Can Bay Holiday Park in Trevally Street; when we were last here in 2013 we were impressed with the place. Out the back of the van we had Little Bronze Cuckoo after setting up a good start.

Little Bronze Cuckoo
In the afternoon I visited the little-known shorebird roost at high tide at Cooloola Cove, about 1km along the foreshore north of the end of Bayside Road; look for a track through fence posts inland a short distance to the tidal flats. The first bird I saw was a Broad-billed Sandpiper on the water edge. It was joined by a smattering of Red-necked Stint, Sharp-taile...

Australian police offer reward for information about murder of ex-KGB colonel "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Police in the Australian state of Queensland have offered a $250,000 (US $182,000) reward for information that can help solve the murder of a former Soviet KGB colonel 18 years ago. The victim, Gennadi Bernovski, worked in the domestic wing of the Soviet KGB, until his retirement, which coincided with the dissolution of the USSR. In 1996, he moved to Australia with his family and bought a house in Benowa Waters, a luxury suburb of Gold Coast, a city located south of Brisbane on the countrys east coast. But on the evening of July 24, 2000, Bernovski was shot to death outside his home by what witnesses said were two men in combat diver suits.

WWI and its centenary highlight leadership weakness "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

When US President Woodrow Wilson tried to belittle Australian Prime Minister Billy Hughes at the 1919 Versailles peace conference by asking who he represented, Hughes replied: I speak for 60,000 Australian war dead.

Hughes may have been bellicose, belligerent and vengeful, but at least he was there, unlike the present Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison.

After four years of having to put up with the jingoism, glorification of war and exaggerated nationalism of the Anzac legend during the centenary of World War I, the one time the real horror and futility of war is marked with quiet dignity, our Prime Minister is missing in inaction. He is on a bus eating pies and drinking beer in Queensland.

Shameful. It was almost as shameful as US President Donald Trumps absence at the first ceremony near Paris because of rain.

It was not enough that the representative in Australia of the British monarchy (which got us into the World War I mess in the first place) attended.

Enough has been written about the centenary. This is about leadership and international co-operation the absence of which led to World War I and allowed it to continue for so long.

The leadership of Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel contrasts with that of Trump and Morrison.

Perhaps the three issues that highlight leadership or lack of it most are: foreign aid, climate change and people movement.

They share the trait of being easy to use to stir up xenophobic and nationalistic attitudes: foreign aid is a waste of money when we have so many problems at home; climate change is an international conspiracy to destroy our economy; movement of people presents a threat to our way of life.

Precisely because it is so easy to kindle those fears that it requires good leadership to make sure they are not kindled, and that the issues are dealt with sensibly.

It used to be that other nation states could be the source of easily whipped up xenophobia, which is what happened in 1914. These days, however, it is more fashionable to direct xenophobia at international forces, mainly because foreign invasions are too costly and unworkable, as Afghanistan and Iraq have proved.

So lets start with foreign aid. Generous well-targeted foreign aid would do much to alleviate the poverty and lack of education in developing countries that does so much to fuel hatred and violent attitudes towards developed countries.

But while France and Germany lead...

There are podcasts about inanimate objects, Nicolas Cage, urban mythology, fountain pen addiction, and even podcasts about podcasts -- the latter being a kind of hellish inception far worse than one could ever begin to imagine.

612 ABC Brisbane radio interview on Qld having nations highest unemployment rate "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

Yesterday I had an enjoyable chat with Steve Austin on his 612 ABC Brisbane Drive program about the latest ABS Labour Force estimates, which, as I reported in yesterdays post, revealed Queensland is the only state with an unemployment rate of 6% or more.  You can hear our discussion, in which I comment on various regulatory and policy settings, as well as the loss in the 2000s of Queenslands previous status as the low tax state, from 2:02:55:

Drive Thursday 15 November 2018

While Queenslands unemployment rate is typically higher than the national rate (see chart below), the current 1.1 percentage point difference between the rates is currently above the 40-year average of 0.4 percentage points. If the current difference were due solely to a surge in workforce participation related to strong jobs growth I wouldnt be concerned. Alas, it isnt. Queenslands rate of jobs growth is less than half the national average. The Queensland economy continues to under-perform.

Mother of Kittens is coming... #ForTheThrone "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

Beloved Throners,

Life is full of uncertainties, but for me right now, two things seemed obvious from the start.

1. That I would LOVE Game of Thrones. Like, REALLY LOVE Game of Thrones.

2. That eventually I would make a show about it.

And so, dear Kittens, with thanks to JB for letting me make the announcement here, I am thrilled to announce that 2019 will bring you something I've been beavering away on for months and months:




The full Perth FRINGEWORLD program going live today was another amazingly timed coincidence, coming as it does one day after HBO launched the #ForTheThrone ad campaign and confirmed the final season of our beloved show will start airing in April 2019. So clearly that means there is a limited time I can actually do this show, as most of the focus will be about getting ready for S8, and dealing with the existential crisis that will inevitably follow.

But it'll be funny, or Jon Snow doesn't have washboard abs under all those furs.

Other locations? Stay tuned...

A massive thank you once again to Whisper & Sing Photography for my Mother of Kittens image, and to Jeffries Printing for the graphic design.

For more, you can follow my Game of Thrones Facebook page, OR the Facebook page for my production company Act/React (I know, so many FB pages).

Or if you're in Perth, book now!

Valar Meowgulis, kittens. xoxo.
