Daytime meteor fireball jets across Toowoomba, Queensland sky "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

An unexplained bright light was seen travelling across the sky above Toowoomba earlier this morning. There may be an innocent explanation for it but it brings forward the age old question - are we alone in the universe? It is something that divides people all across the world and when unexplained flashes of light or objects are snapped in the sky, the question is again brought to the forefront of people's minds. Most of the time they can be explained, but sometimes they can't. This morning Nathan Murphy shared a photo he snapped of the puzzling light moving across the sky at 6.30am.

Ex Hamel 2018 - RAAF Search and Rescue Agusta AW139 Helicopter VH-SYJ "Choppa 32" Lands at Rockhampton Base Hospital "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Tuesday 19 June, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Search and Rescue (CHC Helicopters Australia / Lloyd Helicopters) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-SYJ "Choppa 32" was spotted landing on the Rockhampton Base Hospital heli-pad.


It appeared to come into Rocky from the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) where it is presently based in support of the joint Military Exercise Hamel 2018.

It also comes a day after Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-020 completed a medical evacuation drill by also landing on the Rockhampton Hospital heli-pad on Monday 18 June.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 19 June, there were a couple of other helicopter visitors into Rockhampton Airport in support of Ex Hamel 2018.

An unidentified Australian Army MRH-90 helicopter popped in briefly during the morning as "Hustler 11", while during the afternoon, another called in as "Warhorse 31".  Later still, another MRH-90 believed to be A40-041 also visited Rockhampton Airport but as "Kraken 11".

MajesTea - Sunnybank "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"


On the subject of new openings in Market Square, I tried out the newly opened MajesTea after getting malatang from Fill the Bowl.


Situated next to half time tea bar, I really wondered when Sunnybank would reach maximum saturation for their bubble tea market. It seems though, that this hasn't really occurred yet though. Like most of the new openings, it was more focused upon the fruity tea and milk foam types which seem to be super popular at the moment. My two companions perused the menu, were quite unimpressed at the price points and opted to skip. 


I tried the combination fruit green tea with a third sugar. For $7.50 it was definitely a very expensive cup of tea. The green tea itself was quite refreshing, though I would have preferred a little more fragrance. The fruits added some light sourness to the drink, making it quite tasty, but for the price, I don't think it justifies a return.

Price Range: $4.80 - $7.50

Also nice with a bit of nutritional yeast sprinkled on.

"A Look to the Heavens" "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Bright spiral galaxy NGC 3169 appears to be unraveling in this cosmic scene, played out some 70 million light-years away just below bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Its beautiful spiral arms are distorted into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 (left) and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally, a common fate even for bright galaxies in the local universe. In fact, drawn out stellar arcs and plumes, indications of gravitational interactions, seem rampant in the deep and colorful galaxy group photo.

The picture spans 20 arc minutes, or about 400,000 light-years at the group's estimated distance, and includes smaller, dimmer NGC 3165 at the right. NGC 3169 is also known to shine across the spectrum from radio to X-rays, harboring an active galactic nucleus that is likely the site of a supermassive black hole.

ENSLAVED & SLSTAFIR "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

 

ENSLAVED

With very special guests SLSTAFIR

Australian Tour 2018

The Viking gods of progressive black metal return to herald the coming of Spring along Australias East Coast this August.

Fresh from delivering the outstandingly heavy powerhouse of an album E, ENSLAVED are bringing the brutal beauty of their doom-laden drums and sledgehammer guitars to deliver a glimpse of metal Valhalla in the blood pounding manner that only they can. Grutle Kjellson growls and rasps to a deceptively wide range while his bass stomps through the Concert Hall. The music is magnificent, with ten minute songs vanishing in what feels like a matter of seconds.

Hellbound Feb 2018 SLSTAFIR Join ENSLAVED as their very special guests for the tour. 20 years into their astonishing career and riding high on the five-star reviews for their Berdreyminn album, SLSTAFIR finally bring their blend of intense post-rock majesty and beautifully melodic,  atmospheric progressive metal to Australia.

Slstafir are on a mission to re-imagine the idiosyncratic grandeur of Icelandic landscapes in vivid sonic shades. Total immersion is compulsory.  The Guardian

The last time ENSLAVED toured Australia it felt like the closing of a chapter. Instead of winding down however, the band have found new inspiration, and this re-energised ENSLAVED is truly something to behold. New works Sacred Horse and Storm Son alongside epic songs from throughout the bands outstanding career (including such intense classics as Roots Of The mountain, Vetrarntt and Isa) will deliver fans a metal experience like no other.

Inner Brisbane Cross River Rail CAPEX comparable to statewide education CAPEX "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Just before I appeared on 612 ABC Brisbanes Breakfast program last week, one of the presenters Bec Levingston asked Deputy Premier Treasurer Jackie Trad what it would cost to air condition every classroom in Queensland, a question she obviously couldnt answer without notice. Having spent the bulk of my schooling in un-air-conditioned classrooms in tropical Townsville, it struck me as a peculiar question, and I though air conditioning every classroom in the state would be a massive extravagance. That said, it did prompt me to look at what the state government currently spends on education capital works and compare it to what it spends on other priorities.

In state budget paper 3, the Capital Statement, we are starting to see the huge cost of the number one extravagance in the state at the moment, Cross River Rail. Total spending on property, plant and equipment for Cross River Rail, which is part of the Treasury portfolio, is estimated to be $733 million in 2018-19. This $733 million spent in inner city Brisbane on Cross River Rail is greater than total property, plant and equipment purchases for the Education portfolio of $674 million across the whole of Queensland! To be fair, I should note that if you add in $99 million of capital grants to other entities (which I suspect includes private schools and universities), total estimated education capital spending comes to $773 million in 2018-19. Still, the fact Cross River Rails total capital spending is of the same scale as education capital spending across the whole state should raise eyebrows. Incidentally, the region benefiting the most from education CAPEX is inner city Brisbane (see chart below). Political commentators would observe the government is worried about a Greens takeover of inner city seats.

SWP: using incentives to lift recruiter performance "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

The Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP) continues to grow. Figures for this financial year to the end of April 2018 show 6,573 SWP visas have been approved. This compares with 6,166 visas approved in total for the full 2016-17 financial year. Moreover, most workers do very well under the scheme. When the World Bank asked 400 Pacific workers how satisfied they were with the SWP, the average score was 8.6, on a scale of one to ten. Similar smaller surveys of Timorese workers found that 96% were satisfied, with 68% very satisfied. In Vanuatu, a survey of 100 returned workers showed that all of the women and 91% of men were satisfied.

That said, this is no time for complacency. It is not clear that arrangements that support a few thousand workers will support the much larger number that could enter Australia both under the Seasonal Worker Programme and the much larger Pacific Labour Scheme. Moreover, while some countries are doing very well under the SWP (Vanuatu, Tonga, Timor-Leste), others are missing out (PNG, Solomon Islands).

The SWP also continues to be subjected to both generalised and specific claims of exploitation in the media. There are also complaints about recruiters in sending countries scamming potential workers. These incidents undermine the development benefits of the scheme, as well as wider community acceptance of the value of the SWP in Australia and in sending countries.

In responding to these problems, so far the focus has been on compliance across the horticultural industry, which is appropriate given the higher number of backpackers working on farms, and their greater risk of exploitation. Victoria, Queensland and South Australia are all introducing labour hire licensing.

There are also SWP-specific responses. One recently-announced reform is the piloting of a 24/7 information line for seasonal workers. It success will depend on how well the information the hotline receives is processed and acted on.

These are all positive moves, but what more could be done? A recent book Merchants of Labor: Recruiters and International Labor Migration by Professor Philip Martin reviews the global experience of the approximately ten million workers who cross international borders...

Corrupt Queensland police bribe bashing victim not to press charges "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

If Australia's police force gets caught out committing criminal offences, there are a few ways that the matter is dealt with by police.


In this case Queensland's Police Service whose chief is Ian Stewart (pictured above), offered cash or hush money in order for the victim not to pursue further action against police.

In the case of the 'whistle blower'  Rick Flori, he gets charged by the organisation he worked for, the organisation committing criminal offences.

SO to make it simple Sgt Rick Flori exposed criminal activity, where he gets charged for committing a criminal activity.

So in Australia it's a crime to expose criminal activity [of the 3rd tier of government, called the judiciary, which the police are part of]?

(Still need more proof you live in a police state?)


What is also concerning is that 18 months earlier Ian Stewart falsely stated that the victim Mr. Noa Begic did not want to pursue charges against police, when in fact he did.

Please note that he (Begic) was paid off in a secret and court sealed confidential settlement, where he then withdrew the complaint.

How can a court (or any person) trust the words of the chief of police Ian Stewart, when at law he is described as an 'unreliable witness'?

Around the world, people have surprisingly modest notions of the ideal life "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

It seems reasonable that people would want to maximize various aspects of life if they were given the opportunity to do so, whether its the pleasure they feel, how intelligent they are, or how much personal freedom they have. In actuality, people around the world seem to aspire for more moderate levels of these and other traits, according to findings published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.

Our research shows that peoples sense of perfection is surprisingly modest, says psychological scientist Matthew J. Hornsey of the University of Queensland, first author on the research. People wanted to have positive qualities, such as health and happiness, but not to the exclusion of other darker experiencesthey wanted about 75% of a good thing.

Furthermore, people said, on average, that they ideally wanted to live until they were 90 years old, which is only slightly higher than the current . Even when imagined that they could take a magic pill guaranteeing , their ideal life expectancy increased by only a few decades, to a median of 120 years old. And when people were invited to choose their ideal IQ, the median score was about 130a score that would classify someone as smart, but not a genius.

Some of Brisbanes finest musos have formed a brand new supergroup "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

If youre still coming to terms with the news that Dreams, a collaboration between Silverchairs Daniel Johns and Luke Steele of Empire Of The Sun and The Sleepy Jackson, are finally releasing tunes, then youre about to get another hefty dose of good news, with some of Brisbanes finest musos coming together to form a brand new rock supergroup.

Consisting of Luke Henery (Violent Soho), Simon Ridley (DZ Deathrays, Velociraptor), Branko Cosic (Tape/Off, Gold Stars), and Matthew Somers (I Heart Hiroshima), Total Pace is the newest supergroup on the block, serving up a mixture of tasty Aussie rock with some solid punk influences thrown in for good measure.

As Scenestr reports, the group formed after spending a number of years hanging out an talking about their favourite bands. Deciding to step away from their main acts briefly to write and compose some new tunes, the group have dropped their debut single, 73, to help celebrate the news.

A thirst for blitzing fun times brought the group together after having spent many nights hanging out, drinking each others band riders over the years talking about some of their favourite punk bands, the group explained in a statement.

After months of trying not to exclusively write songs about beer, and somehow avoiding a beer pun for a name, Total Pace are here to really just have a good time.

If you like what you hear, the band are set to make their live debut next month, performing at Brisbanes Black Bear Lodge, with Electric Zebra coming along for the ride. Theres still more supports to be announced, but if youre keen on seeing some of Brisbanes most talented musicians all under the same roof, then youd better head over to the Facebook event page for more info.

Motorcycle tours for people with disabilities "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

A veteran Toowoomba rider is hoping to establish a motorcycle tour business for people with disabilities as well as tourists and anyone interested in a riding tour as a passenger.

Mick Jackson has also designed a special sidecar to accommodate people with disabilities and their carers.

I ran a trial motorcycle tour business in Toowoomba for about six months and received a lot of enquires from people with special needs, their carers and disability support organisations, he says.

Unfortunately, in many cases we were forced to turn people away because our vehicles and traditional tour ride protocols and procedures were not capable of providing our passengers with special needs a safe and professional ride experience.

Crowd funding

So he has now kicked off a crowd-funding campaign to start his business, Live To Ride Motorcycle Tours, to provide people with or without disabilities and special needs with the capacity, ability and opportunity to enjoy the thrill of a motorbike ride in comfort and safety.

Click here to donate.

He hopes to raise $100,000 over the next month with no funds drawn from the campaign to start the business unless it reaches its target.
