  2. Desert Farm Grows 17,000 Tons of Food without Soil, Pesticides, Fossil Fuels or Groundwater Dec. 30, 2016 Waking Times Media Staff Christina Sarich The world’s first farm to use seawater and sunlight to grow food in the middle of a desert just opened. "The world’s first farm to use seawater and sunlight to grow food in the middle of a desert just opened. Using coconut husks, 23,000 mirrors to reflect solar power, and desalinated water, Sundrop Farms situated in Port Augusta – a desert area in Australian – works agricultural voodoo. Without resorting to pesticides, needing to rely on rainfall, or turning to fossil fuels to power their 20-hectare farm, their system is proving to be a sustainable show-boat for growing food in new ways. As populations rise, the global demand for food will rise also. Although food waste needs to be curbed, since roughly one-third of all food produce globally every year is thrown out, costing roughly $680 billion dollars to industrialized nations, and $315 billion to emerging nations, there are ways we can create more food sustainably without taxing the world’s resources. The three biggest hurdles to growing pesticide-free food for most farmers are water, land, and energy. By breaking our dependence on these finite resources, along with respecting them along with traditional farming practices, more food can be grown for more people. Climate change, biotech company land grabs, drought, floods, and pestilence are no longer a concern for innovative farmers, though. Sundrop’s ability to carry on despite extreme weather was already demonstrated just weeks ago a once-in-50-year storm wreaked havoc in South Australia. Sundrop Farms was able to take the brunt of high winds and continue operations despite a massive blackout that crippled much of the area. By treating brackish water from Spencer Gulf and reusing it in a massive greenhouse lined with cardboard, Sundrop avoids having to rely on groundwater. Drought-devastated California farmers recently used 15 gallons of water to grow a tiny handful of almonds, and water-use like this is not uncommon in traditional farming. Sundrop also grows hydroponically which reduces the overall need for water while making the need for soil a moot point. Utilizing a bevy of mirrors to redirect the desert sun, all the farm needs is sunlight and some seawater to grow 17,000 metric tons of food every year. The company also uses no chemical fertilizers, and no pesticides, as it employs beneficial bugs to destroy the pests which could harm the crops. They grow only non-GMO produce, and supply grocery stores in Australia. About 13 percent of Australia’s market share, and will be sold at a fixed price for 10 years exclusively at Coles Supermarkets." snip http://wakingtimesmedia.com/desert-farm-grows-17000-tons-of-food-without-soil-pesticides-fossil-fuels-or-groundwater/ original source: http://themindunleashed.com/
  3. Obituary: Great Barrier Reef (25 Million BC-2016) October 11, 2016 Rowan Jacobsen For most of its life, the reef was the world’s largest living structure, and the only one visible from space. Illustration: Andrew Holder "The Great Barrier Reef of Australia passed away in 2016 after a long illness. It was 25 million years old. For most of its life, the reef was the world’s largest living structure, and the only one visible from space. It was 1,400 miles long, with 2,900 individual reefs and 1,050 islands. In total area, it was larger than the United Kingdom, and it contained more biodiversity than all of Europe combined. It harbored 1,625 species of fish, 3,000 species of mollusk, 450 species of coral, 220 species of birds, and 30 species of whales and dolphins. Among its many other achievements, the reef was home to one of the world’s largest populations of dugong and the largest breeding ground of green turtles. The reef was born on the eastern coast of the continent of Australia during the Miocene epoch. Its first 24.99 million years were seemingly happy ones, marked by overall growth. It was formed by corals, which are tiny anemone-like animals that secrete shell to form colonies of millions of individuals. Its complex, sheltered structure came to comprise the most important habitat in the ocean. As sea levels rose and fell through the ages, the reef built itself into a vast labyrinth of shallow-water reefs and atolls extending 140 miles off the Australian coast and ending in an outer wall that plunged half a mile into the abyss. With such extraordinary diversity of life and landscape, it provided some of the most thrilling marine adventures on earth to humans who visited. Its otherworldly colors and patterns will be sorely missed. To say the reef was an extremely active member of its community is an understatement. The surrounding ecological community wouldn’t have existed without it. Its generous spirit was immediately evident 60,000 years ago, when the first humans reached Australia from Asia during a time of much lower sea levels. At that time, the upper portions of the reef comprised limestone cliffs and innumerable caves lining a resource-rich coast. Charlie Veron, longtime chief scientist for the Australian Institute of Marine Science and the Great Barrier Reef’s most passionate champion (he personally discovered 20 percent of the world’s coral species), called the reef in that era a “Stone Age Utopia.” Aboriginal clans hunted and fished its waters and cays for millennia, and continued to do so right up to its demise. Worldwide fame touched the reef in 1770, when Captain James Cook became the first European to navigate its deadly maze. Although the reef was beloved by nearly all who knew it, Cook was not a fan. “The sea in all parts conceals shoals that suddenly project from the shore, and rocks that rise abruptly like a pyramid from the bottom,” he wrote in his journal. Cook’s ship foundered on one of those shoals and was nearly sunk, but after several months Cook escaped the reef. After that, the reef was rarely out of the spotlight. A beacon for explorers, scientists, artists, and tourists, it became Australia’s crown jewel. Yet that didn’t stop the Queensland government from attempting to lease nearly the entire reef to oil and mining companies in the 1960s—a move that gave birth to Australia’s first conservation movement and a decade-long “Save the Reef” campaign that culminated in the 1975 creation of Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which restricted fishing, shipping, and development in the reef and seemed to ensure its survival. In his 2008 book, A Reef in Time, Veron wrote that back then he might have ended his book about the reef with “a heartwarming bromide: ‘And now we can rest assured that future generations will treasure this great wilderness area for all time.’” But, he continued: “Today, as we are coming to grips with the influence that humans are having on the world’s environments, it will come as no surprise that I am unable to write anything remotely like that ending.” http://www.outsideonline.com/2112086/obituary-great-barrier-reef-25-million-bc-2016 http://www.oceanarkalliance.org.au/
  4. The new laws that come into effect in 2016 around Australia January 2, 2016 Shoba Rao and wiresNews Corp Australia Network Helping buyers ... underquoting laws come into effect. Picture: Thinkstock "THE new year brings new laws from today, which will affect Australians every day. From passports to medicine, here are some of the changes ahead in 2016. FAMILIES Immunisation changes to access childcare payments Immunisation requirements for childcare payments and Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement changed today. The No Jab, No Play rules were supported by both sides of the federal Parliament. To meet the immunisation requirements for Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement and Child Care Benefit, your child needs to be up to date with their immunisations according to the early childhood vaccination schedule appropriate for your child’s age, or have a medical exemption. Nanny subsidy program begins The two-year Nanny Pilot Programme, which starts from January 2016, will provide an hourly subsidy for about 10,000 children to help families meet the cost of using a nanny. It will support families who find it difficult to access child care services because they work non-standard hours, or live in remote areas or away from existing child care. For each child, successful families will receive a percentage of the $7 hourly subsidy. Families earning up to $60,000 are eligible for $5.95 per hour per child, and families earning between $165,000 and $250,000 are eligible for $3.50 per hour per child. The program is not intended to fully subsidise the cost of a nanny. SUPERANNUATION AND TAXES New caps on superannuation income From today, the deductible amount for you and your partner’s defined benefit income streams will be capped. The deductible amount of a defined benefit income stream is also known as the tax free component. A defined benefit income stream is a pension paid from a public sector or other corporate defined benefit superannuation fund where the pension generally reflects years of service and final salary. The government uses the income you receive to assess your eligibility for payments and other entitlements. The income they assess from defined benefit income streams may be reduced by the tax free component. This change will impact income support payments, Low Income Health Care Card, and aged care fees. Residential, rental care changes Rental income will be included in the aged care means test for all new Residential Care recipients and some existing Residential Care recipients from today. Currently, rental income from a Residential Care recipient’s former principal home is included in the aged care means test if they make lump sum accommodation payments. It is not included if they make periodic accommodation payments or a combination of periodic and lump sum accommodation payments. Residential Care recipients, entering care after January 1, 2016, will have rental income from their former principal home included in the aged care means test. See the Human Services website for more information. HEALTH Cost of Panadol Osteo to rise The makers of the popular painkiller Panadol Osteo are lifting its price 50 per cent today. GlaxoSmithKline said the price hike was due to changes to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme under which the government is stopping subsidising medications that can be bought cheaply over the counter. Pensioners with arthritis, who use the slow release pain reliever, currently pay just $6.10 for 192 tablets each month. This will rise to $12 from January 1 when the pills are no longer subsidised. 17 medications to come off the PBS Panadol Osteo is one of 17 types of medication that will be removed from the subsidy scheme in 2016 to save taxpayers $87 million a year. Other medications include aspirin, medication for reflux, skin allergies, antacids, chloramphenicol eye products, iron/folic acid supplements, electrolytes, urine test strips, laxatives and Vitamin B12 injections. Unlike slow release paracetamol most of these other medications will be cheaper to buy off the PBS." $1 discount option on prescription medicines snip POSTAL COSTS TO RISE snip YOUTH snip PASSPORTS snip BY THE STATES: snip http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/the-new-laws-that-come-into-effect-in-2016-around-australia/news-story/d1c8d62202b041d3614a3d252fd049dc Since we have many Australians on Chani, just a head's up for those of you affected by any of these new laws.

  7. Storms to hit Brisbane as Queensland heats up October 27, 2014 "Skies are expected to light up on Monday afternoon. Dramatic lightning storms are expected to hit Brisbane, while temperatures in some parts of Queensland have tipped 40 degrees. Skies are expected to light up in the state's capital on Monday afternoon when the mercury peaks at 36 degrees, about 10 hotter than average for this time of year. In Cunnamulla, in southwest Queensland, a temperature record that stood for more than a century tumbled on Sunday when it reached 42 degrees. And the weather bureau says other long-standing October temperature records could fall by the end of Monday.

"We're talking record temperatures for much of the southern interior and southeast inland today." snip http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/storms-to-hit-brisbane-as-queensland-heats-up-20141027-11cg9u.html#ixzz3HNlkvHqN
  8. Hieroglyphics Experts Declare Ancient Egyptian Carvings in Australia to be AUTHENTIC By Patricia Awyan Guest Writer for Wake Up World October 14, 2014 Foreword by WUW Co-Founder Andy Whiteley "Based in Egypt, the continuing research of the Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism is focused on the implications of the evidence left behind for us to discover by the indigenous and the ancients of Egypt. Drawing on the expertise of hieroglyphics expert Mohamed Ibrahim and Khemit School Co-Director Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan (who has studied ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs his entire life), the Khemit School Team worked tirelessly over recent months, deciphering the mysterious (and hotly disputed) set of around 300 early-Egyptian hieroglyphs carved into remote rock walls in bushland near Gosford NSW, on the east coast of Australia. And the result? Not only are the Gosford ‘Glyphs legitimate, the scribes accurately used several ancient hieroglyphs and ‘grammatical’ variations which, crucially, were not even documented in Egyptian hieroglyphic texts until 2012, immediately disproving all long-standing ‘hoax’ theories. The specific style of hieroglyphs used also provides a linguistic time-frame that places an Egyptian presence in Australia at least 2,500 years ago, while the translated text is even so detailed as to identify the ancient scribes, by name and occupation. In this history-writing presentation, Patricia Awyan (Co-Director of the Khemit School) and the Khemit team provide details of the team’s research methodology, a translation of the wall’s narrative, and an extensive 3-part interview and expert analysis of the Gosford ‘glyphs featuring Mohamed Ibrahim and Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan." Egyptian Hieroglyphs Written During Ancient Times The Khemit School Team has visited, documented and completed an in depth study of the now famous “Gosford Glyphs” located near Kariong, about 60 km north of Sydney, Australia Last February, Beatrice Awyan and I embarked on a journey of discovery to both New Zealand and Australia as I was invited to present a series of lectures in Auckland, NZ and Melbourne, AU. After we announced our journey, we were delighted to receive invitations from Sonya van Gelder and Steve & Evan Strong, to visit the Gosford ‘Glyph site with them to view what many believe to be very ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs carved on 2 very large sandstone rocks in a remote area in the forest. Reports of these enigmatic glyphs date back to the early 1900’s, and there has been much controversy about whether they were placed there as a hoax – or that they were in fact, carved by one or more Egyptians in ancient times. My husband, Yousef and Mohamed Ibrahim were so excited by the prospect of our visit, that they began to study the pictures of the Glyphs (that had been sent to us by Sonya at an earlier date) in order to create a video of their findings — so that Beatrice and I would have something to offer as a gift, in return for this generous invitation." snip http://wakeup-world.com/2014/10/14/hieroglyphics-experts-declare-ancient-egyptian-carvings-in-australia-authentic/ tx Onyx
  9. World’s Oldest Art Confirms Humans Have Loved Animal Pictures for 40,000 Years Becky Ferreira October 8, 2014 The “Panel of Hands” in Spain. Image: artdaily.org "New research has found that the Indonesian island of Sulawesi is home to the world’s oldest cave drawings, which means European paleolithic people were not unique—or even the first—to produce visual art. A team led by archaeologist Maxime Aubert of Australia’s Griffith University found that a hand stencil on Sulawesi dates back at least 39,900 years, about 2,000 years older than the oldest corresponding hand stencils in Europe. The researchers published their findings today in Nature. The discovery “allows us to move away from the view that Europe was special,”said Aubert of his team’s research, in a Nature statement. “There was some idea that early Europeans were more aware of themselves and their surroundings. Now we can say that’s not true.” Indeed, the Sulawesi drawings were originally discovered in the 1950s, but they were written off as being about 10,000 years old. Nobody had ever bothered to empirically date them until Aubert’s team calculated their true age with uranium-thorium dating. The discovery is expected to spark a total re-evaluation of ancient Asian cave drawings, which haven’t been as comprehensively studied as their European counterparts despite the eerily similar timeline and content. snip For example, the Sulawesi cave walls are inked with stencils of hands, much like the “Panel of Hands” in the El Castillo Cave in Spain. The hand stencils of both caves were laid down approximately 40,000 years ago, and were followed by images of regional animals about 5,000-10,000 years after that. In Europe, the images were of bison, aurochs, horses, and deer, while the Sulawesi caves display a 35,400-year-old painting of a babirusa, a species of pig." http://motherboard.vice.com/read/the-worlds-oldest-art-confirms-humans-have-loved-bacon-for-40000-years
  10. UFO sightings increasing in Queensland say researchers September 3, 2014 by: Alejandro Rojas "UFO researchers say UFO sightings are increasing in the state of Queensland in Australia. Recent sightings have included photos and video. UFO Research Queensland President Sheryl Gottschall told the Brisbane Times there has been a spike in reports over the last few months. She says, “We get about 100 calls a year and across Australia all up the UFO research groups get up to 800. That’s just the reported sightings – a lot go unreported.” Another representative from the Queensland UFO group agrees. In a radio interview with 4BC, Tino Pezzimenti says, “Only about 5% of reports or sightings actually get reported, so you can imagine. We get a couple hundred a year. That’s only probably 5% of people that actually find their way to reporting something to us.” snip more pictures at link http://www.openminds.tv/ufo-sightings-increasing-in-queensland-say-researchers-photos/29822 ps: other ufo info on that page also
  11. hmm ... what's going on here? The Pentagon said Thursday that U.S. and Chinese military forces have agreed to participate in an unprecedented land training exercise together in Australia later this year. Despite friction between Washington and Beijing over China’s military muscle-flexing in Asia, the two sides have conducted occasional joint naval drills during recent years. But the upcoming ground force exercise will be the first of its kind. Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Jeff Pool confirmed an Australian media report Thursday, which said the exercise will take place in October in rugged terrain, with a small but unspecified number of U.S. Marines, Australian and Chinese troops participating.

  12. CANBERRA, Australia February 7, 2014 (AP) By ROD McGUIRK Associated Press "Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Friday that no asylum seeker had reached Australia by boat in 50 days, the longest period since 2008, describing the measures to turn them back as tough but effective. Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported that the Australian navy sent 34 asylum seekers from Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal who attempted to reach Australia aboard a rickety Indonesian boat back to the main Indonesian island of Java on Wednesday night in a lifeboat. The government maintained its policy of refusing to say whether it had ever turned back asylum seekers who attempt to reach Australia by boat. Abbott has likened Australia's operations against people smuggling to a war footing, and border policing activities are shrouded in unprecedented secrecy. "I'm pleased that we've now had 50 days without an illegal boat arriving in Australia, and the message is getting out loud and clear to the people smugglers and their would-be customers that the way is shut ... you will not pass," Abbott said. "Yes, they're tough policies, but they're working," he added, without detailing those policies." snip http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/australian-pm-asylum-seeker-policy-tough-22403047
  13. UPDATE: January 31, 2014 " (Reuters) - Australia's Great Barrier Reef watchdog gave the green light on Friday for millions of cubic metres of dredged mud to be dumped near the fragile reef to create the world's biggest coal port and possibly unlock $28 billion in coal projects. The dumping permit clears the way for a major expansion of the port of Abbot Point for two Indian firms and Australian billionaire miner Gina Rinehart, who together have $16 billion worth of coal projects in the untapped, inland Galilee Basin. Environmentalists, scientists and tourist operators had fought the plan, which they fear will harm delicate corals and seagrasses and potentially double the ship traffic through the World Heritage marine park. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, an independent government agency charged with protecting the reef, acknowledged the concerns, but said expanding Abbot Point would require much less dredging than other port options. snip The permit to dump 3 million cubic metres of mud within the marine park could place at risk the World Heritage-listing of the Great Barrier Reef, one of Australia's top tourist attractions generating an estimated $5.7 billion. UNESCO, which awarded the reef its heritage listing, last year postponed a decision to June 2014 on whether to put the Great Barrier Reef on its "in danger" list or even cancel its World Heritage listing. It is awaiting a report from the national government on steps taken to address its concerns." snip http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/31/australia-reef-permit-idUSL3N0L515P20140131?feedType=RSS&feedName=rbssEnergyNews I am not even an Aussie and this makes me furious!! WTH are they thinking? To risk it's World-Heritage listing is enough, to risk the reef itself is is is......
  14. 20th November 2013 By Dave Mihalovic Guest Writer for Wake Up World "The Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) is on its way to approving a licence application from PaxVax Australia (PaxVax) for the intentional release of a GMO vaccine consisting of live bacteria into the environment in Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Victoria. According to the regulator, it qualifies as a limited and controlled release under section 50A of the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act). PaxVax is seeking approval to conduct the clinical trial of a genetically modified live bacterial vaccine against cholera. Once underway the trial is expected to be completed within one year, with trial sites selected from local government areas (LGAs) in Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia. PaxVax has proposed a number of control measures they say will restrict the spread and persistence of the GM vaccine and its introduced genetic material, however there is always a possibility of these restrictions failing and infecting wildlife and ecosystems. snip Pentagon Document Revealed Aerial Vaccination Plans The Quarterly FunVax Review in June, 2007 reports the objectives of a project listed as ID: 149AZ2 involved disrupting the expression of a specific gene (VMAT2) in unknowing communities. The objective of this phase… is to prepare a viral vector that will inhibit/decrease the expression of VMAT2 within a human population. It further indicates in the report’s abstract that six methods of virus dispersal were tested, including high altitude release, water supply release, insect transmission, and various methods of diffusion." <<<hmm, gee that first one sounds like chemtrails to me. http://wakeup-world.com/2013/11/20/australia-to-trial-forcible-vaccination-through-release-of-aerosol-gmo-vaccine/
  15. Vehicle monitors whether a driver is paying attention and slows down if they're distracted November 1, 2013 By Ellie Zolfagharifard Car features 'neuro headset' that connects brain activity to the car’s engine 14 sensors monitor how and when a driver’s neural activity dips The headset also analyses blink rate and the direction of a driver's head When the driver is distracted, software sends a cut-off signal to car's engine How many times have you had a close-call after being distracted behind the wheel? According to road safety charity, Brake, probably far more often than you'd like to think. The group estimates that a huge 22 per cent of all crashes are caused by driver inattention. A new car, however, hopes to solve this problem by using a driver's brain waves to start the engine and keep it going. The concept, developed by the Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia and Emotiv, is currently being tested in a Honda i40. The Attention Powered Car features a neuro headset that connects brain activity to the car’s engine through customised software. snip Rest of the story, video, and pictures are here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2483553/The-brain-powered-CAR-Vehicle-monitors-driver-paying-attention-slows-theyre-distracted.html can't help but think about Blue ET here, and this vehicle is being developed and tested in Australia, pretty danged close proximity..
