Needled Strawberries: Food Terrorism Down Under "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

There is something peculiar doing the rounds in Australian food circles.  The land down under, considered something of a nirvana of fruit and vegetable production despite horrendous droughts and calamitous cyclones, is facing a new challenge: human agency, namely in the form of despoliation of strawberries.

The results have knocked Australias highly concentrated supermarket chains, with both Coles and Aldi withdrawing all their fruit with a nervousness that has not been seen in years.  A spate of incidents involving contamination, or pins stuck in the fruit, have manifested across a range of outlets.  Strawberry brands including Donnybrook Berries, Love Berry, Delightful Strawberries, Oasis brands, Berry Obsession, Berry Licious and Mals Black Label have made it onto the list of needled suppliers.  There have been possible copycat initiates doing the rounds.  This, exclaimed Strawberries Australia Inc. Queensland spokesman Ray Daniels, is food terrorism that is bringing an industry to its knees.

The game of food contamination, infection or, as Daniels deems it, food terrorism, is the sort of thing that multiplies in fear and emotion.  It targets the industry itself (the strawberry market is already frail before the effects of pest and blight), and ensures maximum publicity for the perpetrator.  Then there is the constant fear of a potential victim, the all stifling terror of legal action that might find a target in the form of a provider.  Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has already boosted such feelings, ordering the Food Standards Australia New Zealand to investigate the matter.  This is a vicious crime, its designed to injure and possible worse, members of the population at large.

Out of 800,000 punnets of strawberries, notes Daniels, seven needles were found.  Youve got more chance of winning lotto than being affected.  Take your chance, and, as with all food production, hope for the best as you would hope for the arrival of a green goddess.

Others such as Anthony Kachenko of Hort Innovation Australia have also moved into a mode of reassurance, a salutary reminder that Australia remains in the stratosphere of food excellence despite such adventurous despoilers.  Sabotage it might be, but it was surely isolated, a nonsense that could be dealt with surgical accuracy. Australia prides itself on safe, healthy, nutritious produce and we have the utmost confidence in the produce that we grow both for the...

Blunt message to states from Canberra on recreational cannabis guest post from Stephen Thornton "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

I am delighted to publish this guest post from my good friend and colleague Dr Stephen Thornton. Views expressed in this guest post are Stephens, and should not necessarily be attributed to me as well. GT

Blunt message to states from Canberra on recreational cannabis

Last week an Australian Senate committee released its report on Senator David Leyonhjelms private members bill to allow any State or Territory Government to legalise and regulate cannabis. The committee, chaired by Queensland LNP Senator Ian Macdonald and including Queensland Labor Senator Murray Watt, was told that cannabis use is less harmful than alcohol use and tobacco use, and that otherwise law-abiding recreational cannabis users were cast as criminals, which increases pressure on the criminal justice system and supports organised and violent crime.

Although I did not make a submission to the inquiry, in 2016 I undertook a preliminary examination of the likely economic and social benefits of legalising recreational cannabis use in Queensland [see here], prompted by its legalisation in a number of US states, which as of January this year includes California, one of the worlds biggest economies. My report found similar benefits to that identified by Senator Leyonhjelm in terms of economic and social benefits to government and consumers, specifically:

  • The Queensland government could collect around $90 million/year in tax and fee revenue in the medium term with new jobs created and would realise significant savings in the budget in regard to decreased police, court and prison costs.
  • Consumers, once purchasing cannabis on the black market and at risk of being fined and imprisoned with the associated police record and social stigma limiting their future job prospects, would realise significant benefits by purchasing from licenced premises and also in terms of product safety. Importantly, they would also financially benefit from lower transaction costs and via a consumer surplus as the scheme matured and the price of cannabis decreased in a competitive environment.

Costly cannabis arrests in Queensland (offset to some extent by fines) are the highest in Australia and have been since 2001-02. Queensland police in 2015-16 arrested 25,307 persons of the nearly 80,000 arrests in Australia and nearly as many as NSW and Victoria in total despite having around one-third of their combined population....

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail A30-001 Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport as "Mitchel 13" "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Thursday 13 September, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-001 was photographed by local plane spotter Kayanne H as it completed a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.





A30-001 appeared to fly up to Rocky from the South and after it completed its airwork the Wedgetail returned back to the South.

A30-001 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Mitchel 13".

Of interest and as we've noted during its other visits to CQ in recent weeks, A30-001 also still wears a sticker on the rear part of its fuselage commemorating the 100th year of the Royal Air Force (RAF) - United Kingdom - with the Wedgetail recently participating in Royal International Tattoo which...

Australian Magpie "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

Magpies are not uncommon in Aussies backyards but I have not had any in my yard since I moved up here nearly 15 years ago. However, not everyone likes these birds in their yard. They often become very aggressive during the breeding season and they are big birds with big strong beaks. This is the bird that has recently been visiting my yard - I think it is a male.

 More often it sees me coming with the camera and  takes off. I am hoping that it will get more used to me as time goes on.
 In my opinion these are some of the smartest birds around! I came to this opinion some years ago when living in New South Wales. My house was next door to my parent's house but about 300 meters down the hill. There were magpies nesting in a big tree behind their house. We found out later that some teens who lived close by had made a habit of throwing stones at the birds and their nest. I think this was what had initially made these birds so very aggressive. But not to Mum! She gardened close under their nest and when she saw the birds she talked softly to them.  They used to come to her back door and 'warble' to her until she came out with some crumbs. But not me!! I had only to open my door to walk up to her house and they would aggressively swoop down and threaten to  attack me. My solution was to borrow Mums floppy blue hat that she always wore out in the yard. It worked As long as I had her blue hat on my head those birds ignored me. Smart birds!!   Hopefully the one now visiting my yard will get as friendly as Mum's birds became.

Burger not so lite "IndyWatch Feed Seq.art"

At some point in the last year or two a couple of discs at the base of my spine began to fuse together. It happens. I wanted to keep up my jujitsu training and, even more importantly, I didn't want to stop doing exercise altogether. There were days when that felt like a real possibility. As the discs grew together, they trapped a couple of nerves between them causing some exciting side effects that felt at times as though one side of my body was on fire.
Anyway this is a long, roundabout way of fessing up that I really stacked on the weight. It was only partly down to physical incapacity. I did a lot of comfort eating after my dad passed away, too. I think I probably wrote about this at end of last year, when the ladies were about to take off for a couple of weeks overseas and I had plans to get to the gym every day.
I managed that. And I lost about 4 kilos. Huzzah for me. But the disc issue never really went away, and I had a couple of months off the mat and out of the gym with illness and more injury at the start of the year.
The weight came crashing back.
It's currently sitting at just over 94 kg. And that is down 2 kg from my peak.
I feel like I'm getting it back under control, however. It's the same old secret formula, exercise more/eat less; especially baked goods and red wine.
The big difference however is my back. I've been using sort of torture rack that I bought online to stretch it out at least four or five times every day, and that's made a big difference. I also got some massage done directly over the affected discs a short while ago and that was amazing. It gave me about two weeks without any pain at all. So I'll definitely be doing that again.
Unfortunately I got the massage on the beach up at Noosa and I can't be driving back and forth to use those guys again.

But there is a spinal massage specialist in my local neighbourhood, so I'm gonna give them a try.
One of the odd problems I've had is that the back stretcher is so effective that after a couple of days of using it I feel fine... and I forget to use it.
You can see where that's going.
So now, I've made the back-stretching sessions part of my work day. When I finish a pomordoro sesh (I'm routinely working 50 minute intervals now), I do a three minute spinal reset.
It seems to work.
I'd happily recommended this thing below for anyone with the same problem as me-fusing of the lower discs. But I don't think it's much good for problems further up the column. It's called a True Back.

VeganMoFo 2018 #17: Menu: From The Voluptuous Vegan "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

I've been pulling out a lot of my older, under used cookbooks this year to start working my way through. One of them was The Voluptuous Vegan by Myra Kornfeld. This book has three parts - soups and stews, a chapter of menus, and then desserts. I have only made a couple of things from it before. The menus themselves don't have names, this is the menu that is found on page 171.

Orange-Ginger Tofu Triangles: I pressed my tofu and marinated it for 24 hours to get the maximum flavour! I found the marinade itself quite oily, it has a quarter cup of canola oil in it, which I think was too much? Once marinated, the recipe says to tip off some of the marinade to leave the tofu half covered, as it is meant to absorb what remains. But even after 50 minutes at 200 degrees C (instead of 180), only a little bit had been absorbed. Still, it had a nice orange flavour that I enjoyed.
Rating: :)

Orange-Ginger Tofu Triangles


Arame Salsa: I made just 1/4 of the original recipe, which made enough to serve with the rest of the menu. Arame is soated in water, then simmered with apple juice. Cucumber, coriander, garlic (I used powder), and scallions rounded it out (I left out the jalapeno), a nice fresh accompaniment.
Rating: :)

Arame Salsa


Citrus-Scented Basmati Rice with Cinnamon and Cumin: Those of you who know me won't be surprised to learn that I totally made this in the rice cooker. I love my rice cooker! It makes things so much easier, and frees up a burner on the stove. I cut the recipe way down... 2 cups of dry brown rice cooked to serve 4 people... that is so much rice! I used 3/4 cup of rice, with 1 cinnamon stick and a little less than a teaspoon of cumin seeds. It did not have a strong flavour, but had a lovely scent.

Humanitarian aid

Lionel Cansdale of the IFMRA says Rotary International is made up of 1.2 million ordinary folk.

Since 1905, Rotary has provided humanitarian aid through charitable donations, and hands-on service. 

Ordinary folk join their local Rotary club to meet a personal desire to selflessly help others both in their own community and further afield, Lionel says.

A Rotary club is a meeting place; an enabler for likeminded people drawn from all walks of life, to pool their skills and strengths. Importantly Rotary is non-religious and apolitical.

A personal benefit from Rotary involvement is the enjoyment of lifelong friendships and networking opportunities with people that share the same core values; best described as ethical, honest and helpful.

Lionel says Rotary isnt just about hard work and fundraising....

Also an exhilarating week ahead, including an Aussie residential property prices Chartfest on Tuesday wherein I'll take a look in some detail at what has played across across the 8 capital cities over FY2018 by dwelling type. 

Fair warning for Tuesday: you can take any media report that mentions a 'record crash' in dwelling transactions and stuff it directly into the thunderbox.

Annoyingly this happens every quarter, of course, because the reported numbers are preliminary and thus incomplete (as anyone with a brain that analyses numbers would intuitively know). 

I have quite a significant international blog readership these days, so I'll try to add a bit of texture too, to explain why the different capital cities are behaving as they are.

When is mynameisFood. back? More food? Next destination? "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

.As you all know, due to various reasons, I have had to take a bit of a break on blogging however, my eating and drinking delicious and not-so-delicious food has always been ongoing to date. So, please be patient, as in October 2018, there will be more foodporn, good and bad reviews coming soon! The time off has been longer than I intended it to be, but one can't help that I do have a full time job as well as a lot going on within the last year, aka. tying the knot this year!, so hope y'all understand.


Please note that some or many of the upcoming reviews will be a 'delayed' post so menus may have changed since I dined there, but instead of wasting my opinions and the food images, I thought why would I not share it to you all? So, I will. It'll not only consist of Brisbane but also Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Hong Kong and after that.... Germany and France, from my recent trip. So a lot is coming, and I'll try to put in more time for all this, as it does take up a lot of time to be honest just to upload, write, edit, review and blabla.

Next stop in the travel itinerary will be 'The Golden State', yes.. you've guessed it, CALIFORNIA, USA.

So, for those of you in the US, please send me an email or comment below on your recommendations for food either cheap eats, mid-range or higher up, I'm open to any and will try to visit as much as I can without going overboard in the 'eating' scene during my time there.

Thanks.

Having seen quite a few photos of the very popular Six Acres Restaurant situated in Rydges along King Street, a friend and I decided to check it out after work one day for a quick mid week dinner. The walk from the CBD to King Street provided good exercise, and I was there 5 mins before our 6pm reservation. 


The setup was modern but rustic, with the exposed lightbulbs really adding to the vibe. Service was friendly, however waitstaff were severely understaffed. Throughout the majority of our meal, there was only one very overworked waiter attending to the needs of everyone. The poor guy was very flustered by the time a waitress came out to help him.

VeganMoFo 2018 #16: Menu: Show Them Your Curry from The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

Welcome to week three of MoFo! This week, my theme is menus. These are similar to recipe round-ups, except they focus on a specific menu suggestion from a book, and how it all comes together. Some may be more elaborate, some may be quite simple, but hopefully all are delicious.

I always make my parents a special dinner for their birthdays, and also for Mother's and Father's dad. My dad loves Indian, so that normally forms the theme of his dinners. Last year for his birthday, I made the 'Show Them Your Curry' menu from The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. It is actually in the Valentine's Day chapter, but whatever! Here's what I made, and stay tuned at the end for bonus cake! You can see what else I have made from this book here.

Potato Samosas in Phyllo: As I was serving only three people, I cut the recipe in half and ended up with nine samosas... which still only used half of the filling that I had made! Was I making them too small? I saved the rest of the filling and just ate it as leftovers with some rice and chutney another day. Confession: phyllo is one of my least favourite things to work with, and as you can see my rolling certainly needs practice. About half way through I was wishing that I had made a samosa strudel! Oh well, practice makes... not perfect but adequate? As well as potato they have onion, carrots, peas, and lots of spices in them.

Pistachio Lentil Biriyani: I made this in a rice cooker for ease, first sauteeing the garlic in a pan before adding it. I also only used two and a half cups of water rather than three and a half cups, based on the instructions with my rice. This was a nice, fragrant rice dish, with lentils, pistachios, and raisins.

Cauliflower Tikka Masala: I made a half recipe of this as well, baking it in an 8 x 8 inch pan rather than a 9 x 13 inch one. This is really easy to make ahead, but I gave it an extra 10 minutes in the oven to bake as it had cooled a bit b...

Sea anemones plentiful in Sunshine Coast rockpools "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

LEFT: decorated anemone, RIGHT: green anemone.

Last Wednesday I went searching for sea anemones on a rocky shoreline south of Coolum Beach, and found five different species in the rock pools there.

My first sighting was of a decorated anemone (Oulactis muscosa) in a sandy, wave-exposed pool, which is a typical microhabitat for this species.

This animal has greyish-white tentacles and a dark red section inside its oral disc, and gets its name from the way it decorates its margins with sand and pebbles in order to better camouflage itself.

This species can often appear almost entirely buried by sand, but I found one specimen in a calmer rock pool that allowed for the good view shown above.

Next up was a green anemone (Aulactinia veratra), and this proved to be a common and variable species at this location.

It was most frequently found deep inside crevices, including some narrow and shallow ones that barely held any water at low tide.

The colour of this creature was not always the vivid green shown in the photo here, and it was quite often a muddy brown hue instead.

Encountering the decorated and green anemones at the start of my search made my eyes grow accustomed to typical anemone shapes and hiding spots, so much so that seeing the next wildly atypical species came as quite a surprise: I suddenly realised that stretching out over the rocks and pools before me lay a vast colony of tiny anemones that I had read about in the Queensland Museums...

Wangan & Jagalingou People | Traditional Owners disturbed by illegal action by Adani "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Wangan & Jagalingou People | Traditional Owners disturbed by illegal action by Adani:



MEDIA RELEASE
13 September 2018
Traditional Owners disturbed by allegations of illegal works by Adani

Call on Qld Government to prosecute any unlawful activity by Adanis coal operation

Revelations yesterday that Adani Mining may have breached environmental laws while operating on Wangan and Jagalingou country has deeply disturbed Traditional Owners.

The Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) Traditional Owners Council are calling on the Queensland Government to investigate and prosecute any illegal activity on their homelands.

Mr Adrian Burragubba, a traditional owner of W&J country and spokesperson for the Council says: The Queensland Government has licensed this unscrupulous corporation and now they must take responsibility for any destruction that is occuring on our country. They must investigate and prosecute Adani for any unlawful activity.

We are very concerned about the impacts on our cultural heritage and ancient story places from Adanis land clearing and other industrial disturbance. It is a grave matter for us that their works could do permanent damage to our sacred Doongmabulla springs.

We have been concerned about activity by Adani contractors on our country over some months now. We will be making our own investigations into what Adani have been doing there and will hold both the company and the Government to account.

Adani have been camped on our country hoping to one day build their mine. Starting work illegally only adds insult to the injury that they are there without our consent. We will continue to pursue them through the courts, and with our demands on the Government.

We have seen the report from the lawyers at the Environmental Defenders Office, and it appears that coal seam dewatering bores and other extensive groundwork is being done in breach of Adanis environmental license, and that Adani may have lied to the Queensland Government about it.

We have known all along that Adani cant be trusted with our country, to respect our rights, or be custodians of the environment. The Government can restore some faith by interrogating Adanis conduct and taking whatever action needed to safeguard our country and culture, he concluded.
