Australia - Two towns are 48kms apart. One has twice as much tooth decay "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

For 40 years, dental therapist Jennifer James has had the "unique experience" of treating children in Bathurst, which has fluoride in its water, and 48 kilometres away in Oberon, which doesn't.
The difference out here working is that you see twice as much tooth decay in children, twice as many fillings, twice as many extractions. That is a comparison we can make weekly in Bathurst and Oberon," said Ms James, who works for NSW Health.
"What people don't see is parents crying because they don't understand why their children need teeth taken out."......................

Is it really as simple and obvious as she believes?

Questioning The Integrity Of Psychiatry "IndyWatch Feed Health"

We have now sunk to a depth where the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent people (George Orwell: Review of Bertrand Russell, in The Adelphi, January 1939).

If we learn one thing from the Royal Commissions into child sexual abuse and the banking and insurance industries (see note 1), it will be this: left to themselves, secure institutions will never conduct the sort of self-critical analysis that the larger society expects and deserves.

In late February this year, a conference on Mental Health in Crisis was held in Sydney and then at five cities in New Zealand. Major speakers included Prof. Peter Gotszche, of the Nordic Cochrane Centre; Bob Whitaker, from Boston; Dr Melissa Raven, from Adelaide; Prof. Roger Mulder, from Dunedin University, NZ; and Maria Bradshaw, from Auckland. I spoke about studies on ECT and several other speakers contributed their harrowing personal experiences of psychiatry.

Subsequently, an article in a New Zealand paper was critical of antidepressants, which provoked the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) to issue a press release (March 9th 2018; taken down soon after) which was openly hostile to the idea that people could criticise antidepressants. As part of that press release, it was claimed that psychiatrists only ever (prescribe drugs) in partnership with the patient and after due consideration of the risks and benefits.

My experience is that this claim is absolute rubbish and I lodged a complaint with the RANZCP to this effect.1 On April 27th, I received a letter from the president of RANZCP, Dr Kym Jenkins, assuring me I had it all wrong, the RANZCP meant no harm, but she firmly reiterated the claim that provoked my complaint:

I wish to highlight the College statement goes on to say, the prescription ofmedications is something that a psychiatrist only ever does in partnership with the patient and after due consideration of the risks and benefits.'

As a result, I thought I should check the veracity of her claim. After a quick survey of my practice, I submitted a paper to the lesser of the two RANZCP journals, Australasian Psychiatry, on May 6th. The following is a slightly amended version:

China: No need to overinterpret bomber in South China Sea "IndyWatch Feed War"

In this image taken from a May 19, 2018, video footage run by Chinas CCTV via AP Video, a Chinese H-6K bomber aircraft is seen flying along a runway in the South China Sea. The Chinese air force has landed long-range bombers for the first time at an airport in the South China Sea, a state newspaper said Saturday, in a move likely to further fuel concerns about Beijings expansive claims over the disputed region.

 

China: No need to overinterpret bomber in South China Sea

Patricia Lourdes Viray (philstar.com) May 22, 2018 10:30am

MANILA, Philippines Downplaying the deployment of a bomber aircraft on one of its outposts in the South China Sea, Beijing insisted that such activities were normal training of Chinese military.

Last week, the Peoples Liberation Army Air Force landed bombers, including the top-of-the-line H-6K, on Woody IslandChinas largest base in the Paracel chain in the South China Sea.

The South China Sea Islands are Chinas territory. The relevant military activities are the normal training of the Chinese military and there is no need for other parties to over-interpret that, Chinese Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said in a press briefing Monday.

China also called out the United States over its freedom of navigation operations in the region.

Washington and its allies in the region have been expressing concern about Chinas militarization activities in the contested waterway.

Archbishop Philip Wilson abuse concealment case the tip of the iceberg donaldelley

Archbishop Philip Wilson abuse concealment case the tip of the iceberg

22 May 2018

The verdict in the case of Archbishop Philip Wilson the most senior Catholic to be charged with concealing child abuse is already being declared a landmark case, with one legal expert predicting it could trigger a flood of other prosecutions.

Key points:

  • Wilson is the most senior Catholic to have been charged with concealing abuse
  • Lawyer Craig Caldicott says todays guilty verdict could prompt other prosecutions
  • He expects Wilson to appeal, and says the case could end up in the High Court

Wilson who became the Archbishop of Adelaide in 2001 was found guilty of covering up abuse by priest Jim Fletcher in the NSW Hunter region in the 1970s.

Magistrate Robert Stone told the court he did not accept Wilson could not recall a 1976 conversation with the victim.

Fruugo Australia Rip-off merchants Corporate Australia

Internet scams are a plenty, where many dodgy businesses try to hide the way they extort (or defraud) the consumer of cash.

In this example we take a look at a company called Fruugo Australia, where the word Australia would allude to purchasing something from an Australian business.



The item being a memory card, shows us that Fruugo Australia put a price on it at $46.95.

What the poor sighted consumer may miss is that the shipping cost is a whopping NINETY DOLLARS and twenty cents.



Upon further investigation, the so called product is in Austria.



According to the manufacturer the 'appearance' of the card is as follows:

Appearance

Dimensions (Max.) 11 mm x 15 mm x 1 mm (0.43" x 0.59" x 0.04")
Weight (Max.) 0.4 g (0.01 oz)

Oberon: Two towns are 48kms apart. One has twice as much tooth decay "IndyWatch Feed Health"

For 40 years, dental therapist Jennifer James has had the unique experience of treating children in Bathurst, which has fluoride in its water, and 48 kilometres away in Oberon, which doesnt.

The difference out here working is that you see twice as much tooth decay in children, twice as many fillings, twice as many extractions. That is a comparison we can make weekly in Bathurst and Oberon, said Ms James, who works for NSW Health.

What people dont see is parents crying because they dont understand why their children need teeth taken out.

For Ms James, it is a clear cut case of the haves and the have-nots. Every day she sees the impact of the Oberons repeated decisions not to fluoridate its water supply in childrens mouths, she told a community meeting in Oberon .

Fifty years after Sydney decided to fluoridate, Oberon is once again tackling the emotional issue of whether to reverse its long-standing opposition to adding fluoride. About 97 per cent of NSW residents have access to fluoridated water.

While some areas cant add fluoride for logistical and technical reasons, Health Minister Brad Hazzard in December urged the eight councils where fluoride could be added to reconsider.

Since then, two councils, Bega and Gunnedah, have decided to add fluoride. Some such as Byron Council didnt reopen debate.

Oberon Council agreed to hear arguments for and against, and ask the community for its views.  Although the Mayor Kathy Sajowitz supports fluoridation, she said she will be guided by the views of the community. If she doesnt, locals told Fairfax that Ms Sajowitz and any councillor who votes for it will be turfed out.

In the lead up to the meeting, anti-fluoride campaigners have been letter boxing homes claiming there were plans to put poison in your water.

Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson found guilty of covering up child sexual abuse

21 May 2018

The most senior Catholic to be charged with concealing child sexual abuse Adelaides Archbishop Philip Wilson is found guilty by a New South Wales court, in a landmark ruling

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Australian archbishop found guilty of covering up sexual abuse

Today, 05:08

An Australian archbishop was found guilty of covering up abuse in the Catholic Church in the 1970s. Philip Wilson can be sentenced to two years in prison. He is the highest placed clergyman in the Catholic Church worldwide who has been found guilty of covering up abuse.

Wilson (67), Archbishop of Adelaide, was suspected of covering up the abuse of four boys by the priest James Fletcher in the 1970s. Wilson himself says he is innocent and has not known about the crimes.

He denied under oath last month that he learned in 1976 from two altar boys that they had been abused sexually. At that time, Wilson was a priest-assistant. I do not think I would forget that, Wilson said in court. One of...

An Anarchist Response to Far-Right Professor Jordan Peterson "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The post An Anarchist Response to Far-Right Professor Jordan Peterson appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following is a critique of the popular far-Right and self-help guru Jordan Peterson. Most recently, Peterson argued that the State should enforce monogamy as a way to end young, male, lone-wolf violence. Peterson represents the push towards a fundamental restructuring of society that re-cements the power of patriarchy, social hierarchy, and the State.

Take responsibility for your own life!, shouts psychology professor, Youtuber and self-help guru Jordan Peterson, capturing the collective imagination of the crowd of starry eyed young men seated before him. As he goes on, the banal platitudes begin to accumulate, Life is suffering, so get your act together!, Clean your room!, and Make your bed!

Peterson claims to be tapping into and addressing the alienation expressed by thousands of young men with his self-help philosophy. He blames third wave feminism, the dissolution of the quintessential male archetype and a lack encouragement for signs of a disaffected population of young men who are experiencing increasing university dropout and suicide rates relative to women. Indeed, one only has to mention the term young men for Peterson to dissolve into tears during interviews, bemoaning the postmodern neo-Marxists whos claim that Western Civilization is a patriarchal hierarchy allegedly undermines the fragile archetypical male. Here, Peterson references a far-Right conspiracy theory commonly associated with fascism, but for now, lets focus on the question of personal responsibility.

What does Peterson mean when he says we should take responsibility for our own lives? In an interview on ABC news Australia where Peterson lays out his philosophy, the interviewer pushes back, pointing out that some people face difficult circumstances in life, which makes it harder to take responsibility. Peterson agrees, responding with: Life is very difficult and we all die well, whats the alternative, you take responsibility for that and try to struggle uphill because the alternative makes everything worse.

With this, Peterson cuts down to an existential truth; in the face of suffering,...

Archbishop guilty of covering up sex abuse National News Echonetdaily

Roman Catholic Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson outside the cathedral in Adelaide. AAP Image/David Mariuz

NEWCASTLE, AAP Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson, the most senior Catholic official in the world to be charged with covering up child sexual abuse, has been found guilty by a NSW court.

Magistrate Robert Stone told Newcastle Local Court on Tuesday Wilson had concealed the abuse of two altar boys in the NSW Hunter region by pedophile priest James Fletcher by failing to report the allegations to police.

Mr Stone said he was satisfied one of the altar boys, Peter Creigh, had been a truthful and reliable witness.

In a statement issued by the Catholic Church, Wilson said he was disappointed by the decision.

I will now have to consider the reasons and consult closely with my lawyers to determine the next steps, he said.

Prosecutor Gareth Harrison had claimed Wilson was involved in a cover-up to protect the churchs reputation and there were doubts about his honesty.

Mr Harrison argued that in Wilsons mind victims came second.

Wilson, 67, who is suffering from the early stages of Alzheimers disease but claims medication has helped his memory, told the court during his landmark magistrate-only trial he could not remember Mr Creigh and another altar boy telling him in 1976 they were abused by Fletcher.

The prosecution argued Wilson failed to give details to police about a serious indictable offence after Fletcher was arrested in 2004 and went on trial for preying on another young boy.

Fletcher was found guilty in December 2004 of nine counts of child sexual abuse. He died in jail of a stroke in January 2006.

But the defence claimed Wilson was not guilty because the case was circumstantial and there was no evidence to prove the archbishop was told about the abuse, believed it was true or remembered being told about it.

Defence barrister Stephen Odgers SC urged the magistrate to take into account that back in the 1970s a priest having sex with a boy was not considered a serious indictable offence.

He said it would have been viewed as an act of indecency, not indecent assault, if the...

The states highest-ranking Catholic Church official appeared shocked as the verdict was delivered in the Newcastle Magistrates Court this morning.

Its alleged Mr Creigh told Wilson about the crimes in 1976, but the Archbishop, who is suffering the early stage of Alzheimers disease, says he has no memory of the conversation.

During his trial, Wilson was accused of being a consummate Catholic politician and a man who was part of an entrenched toxic culture of covering things up.

Prosecutors also accused him of lying, under oath, in court.

The way the accused answered questions, your honour would have serious doubts as to his honesty, said prosecutor Gather Harrison.

Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson found guilty of covering up child sexual abuse

22 May 2018

The most senior Catholic to be charged with concealing child sexual abuse Adelaides Archbishop Philip Wilson has been found guilty by a New South Wales court.

Key points:

  • Wilson concealed child sexual abuse by a fellow priest in the 1970s
  • He was assistant parish priest in East Maitland, NSW, at the time
  • He could face up to two years in jail

The 67-year-old was accused of covering up abuse by priest Jim Fletcher in the NSW Hunter region in the 1970s.

The prosecution has requested a custodial sentence for Wilson, for reasons of deterrence and denunciation.

Wilson remains on bail on the condition that he attends his sentencing hearing, which will be held on June 19.

The harshest sentence Magistrate Robert Stone is able to give is two years in prison, and he has the option of suspending the sentence.

Witness was truthful and reliable

Wilsons legal team made four attempts to have the case thrown out, arguing it was not in the public interest and that his diagnosis of Alzheimers should preclude him from trial although it did not preclude him from retaining his position in the church.

Fake news instead of real criticism "IndyWatch Feed War"

by Denis Churilov, Australia There are so many real things Trump should be criticised for, yet the mainstream media keeps making up stuff, producing fake stories and misreporting news about him. What for? Isnt there already enough real material for the media to destroy him without repeatedly making fools out of themselves? The most recent case was last week, when major American news outlets (including ABC News, CBS News, CNN, NBC News, as well as the Washington Post) reported that Trump called illegal immigrants animals, when in reality he was specifically referring to the members of MS-13, a criminal gang whose associates have been accused of beheading their victims. Dont they understand that, by fixating on minor things, taking remarks out of context, misreporting and blatantly making up stories, they only de-legitimise the anti-Trump movement? Why do they have to lie? ***   Attempting to answer my own question, I would say that it has to do with the artificially limited spectrum of acceptable opinion described by Noam Chomsky in his 1998 book titled A

Reef money for foundation with mining industry links The Pen

Contributed by Adam Carlton

We always knew that there is a connection between the promotion of climate denial and it is always useful to be armed with evidence, showing that these are peddlers of lies for short-term greed.

It is well known that specialist public relations firms that were once engaged to build public opinion around the belief that there is no proof that smoking is bad for you. They also worked for oil. now they have turned their talents, to saying there is no proof that the worlds climate is rising.

Any connection between interests standing to gain from polluting the Great Barrier Reef and and the need to protect it, should concern everyone.

Of the recent$500 million provided in the recent budget for the reef, $144 million of it will be going  to a partnership between the government and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. The trouble with this, is that the foundations , major patron was by Peabody Energy, which had been heavily involved in funding the climate change denial campaign. This corporation went into receivership and no longer exists. But there are others, including Mitsubishi, Rio Tinto, BHP, Origin Energy, AGL and ConocoPhillips Australia. This is enough to suggest that the Great Barrier Reef fondation is compromised. This sort of patronage does not exist without reason.

We know that the Turnbull government is under immense pressure, to look like its doing something to protect the Reef. This certainly fits the bill, with the added benefit of providing a cover for what it really wants to do.

Perhaps there are those within or associated with the foundation, who genuinely want positive action. But this does not get away from the fact that it is compromised by its ties.

The funding is said to be marked for improving water quality, tackling the crown-of-thorns starfish, and expanding reef restoration, and to develop coral that is more resistant to high temperatures and light stress.

There is concern that there will be a new emphasis on promoting solutions through management, without having to do anything about the threat of global arming.

Behind all the fanfare about a newly discovered concern for the future of the worlds biggest reef system, nothing has been done to stop exploration for mineral and gas resources. The danger is that the companies patronising the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, stand first in line to benefit from any discoveries.

This is a clear conflict of interest, which doesnt create a great deal of optimism about a decisive change in government policy...

NZ wont pay for homeless in Aust: Ardern "IndyWatch Feed World"

NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Photo EPA/Felipe Trueba

WELLINGTON, AAP New Zealand will keep pushing for benefits for homeless Kiwi youths living in Australia but it wont pick up the bill, Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, says.

More than three dozen Australian organisations have written to Ms Ardern calling for her to push a Trans-Tasman solution to the plight of New Zealand teens left on the streets because they are unable to claim benefits in Australia.

They say family violence and breakdowns often lead to homelessness and leave 15-to-18-year-olds vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, with reports some are turning to prostitution.

Under the current law, Kiwis that came across after February 2001 arent eligible for the benefits given to homeless Australian youths.

Ms Ardern on Tuesday said while the stories she had heard were stark the issue had been consistently raised with the Australian government.

We have continued to maintain the rights of Australians in New Zealand. We continue to seek from Australia that they do the same, she told Radio NZ.

All we are seeking is equity in the relationship that we used to have and thats a point well keep making.

If given out at the same rate as to Australians, the benefit would help about 160 New Zealanders at a cost of about $2 million.

Ms Ardern said while the New Zealand government would be happy to provide support to the youths back home, it wouldnt be paying Australia to extend the benefit to them.

Theres no country in the world that funds another government to make welfare payments, she said.

Melbourne community lawyer Shorna Moore said many of the teens had only ever known a life in Australia and that the consequences of homelessness especially for young women were horrendous.

These kids are falling through the cracks and the governments of New Zealand and Australia must step in, she said.

Govt says it wont split tax-cut plan National News Echonetdaily

CANBERRA, AAP Labor has left the door open to supporting the second stage of the Turnbull governments income tax plan, but the coalition still wont be splitting its package.

The opposition already supports the first part of the income tax cut plan, which starts with a reduction of up to $530 a year under a low and middle-income tax offset.

It remains coy on changes to certain tax brackets at various stages, awaiting further details.

Labor finance spokesman Jim Chalmers says the party is still discussing the second phase.

Were going to have a conversation about it internally. Weve said were not wild about stage three; we said were keen on 1 July; were still having a conversation about stage two, he told Sky News.

Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen insists Labor wants more details.

We support the 2018 tax cuts, we have grave reservations about the 2024 tax cuts, we want more information about the 2022 tax cuts, he told reporters in Canberra.

The treasurer wants the parliament to vote on these tax cuts but he wont release the year on year costing.

But Finance Minister Mathias Cormann has reaffirmed the government will not be splitting the package.

We are focused on securing the passage of the whole plan, he said.

Labor will have to decide whether they will stand in the way of income tax relief.

The plan is due to be debated in parliament on Tuesday.

The government has the numbers in the lower house to pass the draft laws this sitting fortnight.

Hanson backflips

But the real negotiations will come to a head when the Senate sits in late June just days out from when the first round of cuts are due to start.

And Pauline Hanson, whose One Nation party holds three key Senate seats, now says shes not convinced the cuts will deliver the governments promised jobs growth, The Australian reported on Tuesday.

But cabinet minister Peter Dutton denies this means One Nation has killed off the package, saying negotiations are continuing.

She is a wiley operator, Pauline. She will put out there she is supporting it, she is not supporting it, she is not supporting it, he told Nine Network.

She understands the benefit of tax cuts in an economy like ours.

Senator Hanson says the cuts havent been well received in the community and is critical of their slow phase-in.

This government is talking about it six or eight years down the track. Well, thats not good enough, she told The Australian.

Finance Minister Mathias Cormann defended this, saying the government wanted to achieve both a return to surplus as soon as possible and provide certainty to business.

I also searched his house but did not find anything that looked suspicious except a pair of duck trousers made in Kings canvas which I also brought away. Mr. Henry Dangar states.....I was robbed some time since of various articles of wearing apparel amongst which were some stockings. Those produced are of the same pattern with some I have by me. I have not any doubt but that they belong to me....The prisoner in his defence stated....I bought the stockings from James Usher for three shillings. I also got the trousers from John Thomas the sail maker.

FLASHBACK: Was the entire Russiagate-Trump 'investigation' a Clinton operation? "IndyWatch Feed World"

You might not know the name of Alexander Downer, but you should. The former Australian Foreign Minister and current Australian ambassador to the United Kingdom, Downer is the person who actually started the ball rolling in creating the anti-Trump dossier. And, it turns out, he's a Clintonite. Downer sat down for a pint or two in a London pub with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos back in 2016. Papadopoulos claimed to Downer that the Russians had some nasty information on Hillary Clinton. Downer subsequently told the FBI. And the FBI then began investigating not Clinton, but possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Russians. When it became known that a foreign diplomat had informed the FBI, it was treated as if it was a simple act of diplomatic chivalry by an ally tipping us off to dirty tricks by the Russians. It turns out it's a bit more complicated than that. In fact, as The Hill has reported, Downer is a Clintonista, and signed over $25 million in Australian government funds to the Clinton Foundation to fight AIDs in Southeast Asia. It was one of the biggest gifts ever to the foundation.

Astronomers using cutting-edge skywatching devices have identified an extremely fast-growing black hole, cataloging it as a 'monster' that eats the mass equivalent of our sun every two days. Astronomers with the Australian National University (ANU) have discovered the fastest-growing black hole in the known universe, a super-massive celestial object some 12 billion light years distant, thought to be at least the size of 20 billion of our suns. Research suggests that the object is so large and has so much gravity that it pulls into itself the mass equivalent of one of our suns every two days, radiating matter-transforming energies back into space on a galactic scale.

News Corporations war on Facebook is over control of social media The Pen

 

Contributed by Joe Montero

An article that recently appeared in The Age (13 May 2018) and written by John McDuling, argued that a big reason why Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are in trouble, is the campaign has that been carried out by Rupert Murdochs News Corporation for ten years.

This does not absolve Zuckerberg and his company from the wrongs over Cambridge Analytica and other misdeeds. But it does add some context.

As John McDuling says, News Corporation charges that Facebook, and other social media platforms are damaging journalism. There is truth to this, although many would argue, News Corporation is much worse in this respect.

Both carry with them the habit to be somewhat less than truthful and to manipulate information for what many consider less than honourable ends.  News is business to make money out of, and a means to achieve corporate political aims and traditional media and the Internet can both be used for these purposes.

Social media has another side as well. It provides a voice for those who are powerless and not rich enough to have open access to television, newspapers and radio. This is something that cant be said for News Corporation.

The worlds most powerful media company is feeling the heat of the digital revolution. Its traditional media is shrinking, and it seeks to move into the digital age. The problem is that Facebook and the other digital giants are in the way.

We saw how the tension in the National Broadband Network was handled in Australia. News Corporations  mouthpieces waged a campaign against it,which persuaded the Turnbull government to come up with a mess.

It was a delaying tactic. The new network posed a threat to Foxtel (owned jointly by News Corporation and Telstra), and News Corporation was not yet in the position to take it over. The tactic used in Australia fits into the global strategy.

The guns are out against Facebook, because News Corporation sees interactive media as a potential source of profit, and this can only be maximised by moving in as the dominant player.

It doesnt stop here. Zuckerberg and the other computer tech companies represent upstarts in the world of global capitalism. They are not part of the old guard, centred on the banking and financial giants, which dominate most industries. This financial oligarchy is the perfect portrayal of the world of suits in hidden boardrooms and dominant hidden shareholders.

The Silicon Valley tech companies are in your face entities led by public personalities, with a hands-on role in their companies. The difference is not only a matter of style....

Alexander Downer sat down for an interview with two FBI agents in London in 2016 to discuss potential Russian meddling in the US presidential election, a sensational report alleges. The revelation the Australian government broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed Mr Downer, then Australia's high commissioner to the United Kingdom, to be interviewed by the FBI could damage Australia's recently repaired relationship with US President Donald Trump. The New York Times first revealed late last year it was at a boozy night in May 2016, at London's Kensington Wine Rooms, that Mr Trump's then foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos told Mr Downer Russia had dirt on Mr Trump's political rival Hillary Clinton.

Australians Lost Over $2 Million to Crypto Scams Last Year "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Australian consumers lost more than $2.one Million to cryptocratic frauds in 2017, the nations Competition and Consumer Commission says. The Commission declared the findings Monday in an annual report, also observing that the increase in crypto related scams corresponded with a rise in coin prices until 2017. Of the more than $2 million lost in 2017, scams cost consumers about $100, 000 per month between January and Sept, the report stated. Nevertheless, In December when bitcoins cost gone through the roof to almost $20, 000 consumers reported losses exceeding $700, 000, the Commission explained. The report indicated that fake ICOs, crypto related pyramid schemes and ransomware obligations were common means of swindling customers.

The Commission stated it expects crypto related fraud to continue, noting, as with some other scams, this is likely the very first tip of the iceberg. The report highlights one example of an epidemic of scams that spans the globe. As previously reported by CoinDesk, only seven prominent scams, hacks and attacks in 2017 resulted in the reduction of around $490 million of consumer capital. Likewise the Wall Street Journal lately reported the 1, 450 ICOs it reviewed, 271 had red flags which include plagiarized investor documents, guarantees of guaranteed returns and fake or missing executive teams. With that being said, the report noted, the Australians generally lost over $340 million in scams overall, with $64 million being lost to investment scams especially last year.

The sharing economy is currently valued at over $100 billion and is predicted to grow to $335 billion or more by 2025, according to a report by Brookings.

I realized just how much waste we produce as a massive consumerist society, said Tim Bos, co-founder and CEO of ShareRing. [I] thought to myself, we can do better than this as a united global front if only we tapped into the real potential of the renting, borrowing and sharing community.

From buying and selling jewelry to storage space to cooking lessons, ShareRing intends to be the first company to provide a simple and secure way to pay for any sharing service, regardless of geographic location.

The Sharing Economy by Numbers

In recent years, major industries such as transportation, delivery, and real estate have undergone a dramatic paradigm shift due to the influence of tech companies in the sharing economy such as Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb. These companies gave the public affordable and easy-to-use alternatives to existing solutions.

According to a report by PwC on the sharing economy, 19% of adults in the United States have participated in at least one sharing-oriented transaction. Of this demographic, 83% believe that the sharing economy makes life more convenient and 86% feel that it reduces their cost of living.

The financial statistics of leading sharing economy companies are nothing short of impressive. Airbnb, for example, averages approximately 425,000 guests per night, boasting a market capitalization of $31 billion. Uber and Lyft are valued at $68 billion and $7.5 billion, respectively. For context, the combined value of these three companies outweighs the GDP of Morocco....

Watch | Max Blumenthal talks Gaza on Sky News Australia

You can watch the trailer below and purchase the complete film here.

In the Electronic Intifada, I profiled a few of the survivors of war who appear in Killing Gaza:

In the town of Khuzaa, in southeastern Gaza, we met Hani al-Najjar, who returned to his home after the Israeli military pulled back, only to find six corpses in his bathroom, all charred, bound and gagged, and blown to bits by an Israeli grenade.

Outside the city of Rafah, in southern Gaza, we met 19-year-old Mahmoud Abu Said, who had been taken as a human shield by Israeli soldiers and held in front of a window in his own home while those soldiers sniped at his neighbors from over his shoulders.

And in Gaza City, we encountered residents of Zafir 4 and the Italian Compound, residential towers that had been blasted to pieces by Israeli jets in the final days of the war for no other purpose than to teach Gazas educated middle class a lesson.

Standing by the rubble of what was once his home outside Rafah, and next to a destroyed taxi that used to belong to his son who was shot in the head by an Israeli sniper, Suleiman al-Zugheibi delivered a testimony of trauma and defiance that was all too common among those we met.

For Ecuador, Currying Favor with Washington is as Simple as Sacrificing Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed World"

LONDON For all practical purposes, whistleblower and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is now a prisoner in asylum at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, facing the torture of near-total isolation from the outside world and hanging by the thread of the Andean states dwindling hospitality.

On Thursday, the Australian who, strangely enough, was given Ecuadorian citizenship last December faced a new layer of precariousness atop his six-year refuge, when Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno ordered that additional security assigned to the building be withdrawn.

According to Ecuadors government, the London Embassy will now have the same level of security enjoyed by the other ambassadorial facilities the Andean nation maintains throughout the globe.

Since March, Ecuador has applied new pressure on Assange, beginning with the withdrawal of Assanges internet connection. Authorities claim this move was in response to his interference, in the form of comments on Spains repression of Catalonian independence advocates and British accusations that Russia poisoned an ex-spy.

The move also coincided with a visit by two top-level officials from U.S. Southern Command to Quito for discussions to renew U.S.-Ecuador security ties. These had largely been frozen following the 2009 shuttering of the U.S. Air Force base in the coastal city of Manta, a major hub of U.S. espionage activity in the region.

Insects Face Calamitous Habitat Loss "IndyWatch Feed World"

Habitat loss may soon mean half the worlds insects, and many plants and animals as well, could find themselves without their familiar home ranges.

Right now, climate scientists warn, global planetary temperatures are on course to rise 3.2C [5.76 F] above the average for most of human history. They have already risen by about 1C [1.8 F] in the last 100 years.

And if they do, then 49% of insects, 44% of plants and 26% of vertebrates could lose more than half of their ranges.

If the 195 nations that agreed in Paris in 2015 to take steps to restrict global warming to a target of 1.5C [2.7 F] keep their pledges, only 6% of insects, 8% of plants and 4% of vertebrates will experience severe reductions in their ranges. Even half a degree makes a huge difference.

Insects are particularly sensitive to climate change. At 2C [3.6 F] warming, 18% of the 31,000 insects we studied are projected to lose more than half their range. This is reduced to 6% at 1.5C. But even at 1.5C, some species lose larger proportions of their range, said Rachel Warren of the University of East Anglia, who led the study.

The current global warming trajectory, if countries meet their international pledges to reduce CO2, is around 3C [5.4 F]. In this case, almost 50% of insects would lose half their range.

These figures are projections based on a sample of animal and plant studies: the sample is however one of the largest undertaken.

Professor Warren and colleagues from Australia report in the journal Science that they studied data involving 34,000 insects and other invertebrates, 8,000 birds, 1,800 reptiles, 1,000 amphibians and 71,000 plants, and took into account the capacity of each species to move to new habitat as the world warms.

Pattern of Alarm

Such studies build on evidence assembled piecemeal, sometimes over many decades, about the impact of humanity on its fellow citizens of the planet. This evidence confirms a consistent pattern of alarm.

Researchers have established repeatedly that ecosystems already under pressure from human invasion are made more vulnerable by global warming and climate change. More precisely, German scientists have established that the s...

The antechinus is a strange little mouse-like creature that endures two to three weeks of marathon mating sessions that leave the male so exhausted that it ultimately dies. But suicidal mating is not all thats killing these animals. Habitat loss, climate change and threats from feral animals like cats, cattle and horses are driving two species of antechinus, both described only recently, to extinction. On May 11, the Australian government officially declared the silver-headed antechinus (Antechinus argentus) and the black-tailed dusky antechinus (Antechinus arktos) endangered. Both species live on remote mountaintops in Queensland, Australia. The silver-headed antechinus, first described in 2013, is known only from the forests of Kroombit Tops National Park in southeast Queensland and two other locations near the border of Queensland and New South Wales. The black-tailed dusky antechinus, described in 2014, is known from three isolated locations near the border of southeast Queensland and northeast New South Wales. Both species occur only in high-altitude forests and have reached their altitudinal limits within their known distribution, the Australian governments Threatened Species Scientific Committee (TSSC) wrote in the species assessments. It is pretty rare to uncover new mammals in developed countries such as Australia, Andrew Baker of the Queensland University of Technology, whose team discovered the two species, said in a statement. These two new species were discovered on misty mountain summits. They have likely retreated there as the climate has warmed, and there is now nowhere left for them to go.

Report: Crypto Scams a Tiny Percent of Fraud in Australia "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has shown in a report that crypto related fraud makes up a tiny percent of scam activity in 2017.

Crypto Scams Make Up a Tiny Part

The watchdogs report entitled  Targeting scams: Report of the ACCC on scams activity 2017 researched over 200,000 scams submitted to them (the ACCC), the Australian Cyber-crime Online Reporting Network, and other state and government-based agencies in 2017 and found that Australians lost AU$2.1 million in crypto related scams out of the overall AU$340 scam economy, or 0.617%.

The report shows that about AU$100,000 was lost per month in crypto related scams with the exception being December 2017 when the price of Bitcoin was skyrocketing and its popularity went up with it resulting in a seven-fold increase. The ACCC wrote Scammers adapt each year and find ways to exploit popular trends, new platforms, new ways of communicating, fad products, changes to legislation, or new investment opportunities, according to ZDNet, adding further in the report that;

As the value of actual cryptocurrencies increased, so too did the scam losses in what people thought were real investments, the report continued. By the end of the year, reports of losses related to cryptocurrencies exceeded Au$2.1 million but as with other scams, this is likely the very tip of the iceberg.

The majority of scams with a crypto angle reported were initial coin offering (ICO) related and almost all were perpetrated on the confusion of how cryptocurrency works. Many of these being essentially pyramid schemes involving investors who were either friends or neighbors of the victims.

Investment and Romance Lead the Scam Economy

Overall the ACCC reported that Australians lost AU$340 million to scammers in 2017. Of those loses investment scams topped the categories at AU$64 million with dating and romance-related scams following behind at AU$ 42 million.  ACCC Deputy Chair Delia Rickard said;

Some scams are becoming very sophisticated and hard to spot. Scammers use modern technology like social media to contact and deceive their victims. In the past few years, reports indicate scammers are using aggressive techniques both over the phone and online,

Cold War Mentality Alive and Well in Australia "IndyWatch Feed War"

Writing in The Australian newspaper under the headline Red Threats to Render White Paper just about Pass (18 May 2018) ANU emeritus professor Paul Dibb offers a commentary that exemplifies much of what is wrong with Australian strategic thinking. The problem is all the more acute because Dibb is regularly quoted in the mainstream media and his views are considered influential. In this latest article he calls for a re-evaluation of the premises underlying the Foreign Policy White Paper released only six months ago.

That White Paper was certainly flawed, although not in the manner that Dibb suggests in underestimating what Dibb calls an aggrieved and newly assertive Russia, as well as an aggressive rising power in China.

The White Paper failed to grasp the realities of a newly emerging multipolar world, and in particular failed to perceive how Australia might best respond in a manner consistent with both its national security and economic interests.

That challenge is not assisted by Dibbs contribution, which is full of faulty assumptions, factual errors, and grievous misinterpretations, not only of post-World War II history, but the current inevitable realignment away from the singularly dangerous exercise of hegemonic power by the United States.

Dibb quotes United States Secretary of Defence James Mattis with evident approval, saying China and Russia wanted to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian models.  China is alleged to be seeking regional hegemony and the displacement of the United States to achieve global preeminence in the future.

The evidence Dibb cites for these assertions are Chinas buildup of its military capabilities in the South China Sea; Russias territorial expansionism in Crimea and Ukraine; Putins aggressive attitude in defending Syria and its use of chemical weapons; and Moscows State sponsored assassination attempts in Britain reflecting Putins contempt for the sanctity of State borders. He even cites the reports of Beijing seeking to develop a military base in Vanuatu.  That the Foreign Minister and Prime Minister of Vanuatu and also the Chinese government have denied the latter report is of little consequence to Professor Dibb.

There is much more in Professor Dibbs commentary in this vein, but those examples illustrate not only the fact free environment that strategic advisors such as Dibb operate in, but also are reflective of strategic thinking in the Australian defence, foreign policy and defence establishments.

In the cited example of Chinas buildup of its military capabilities in the South China Sea there are several components of this allegation that put it in a different context from the viewpoint usually advanced in the Australian media. The so-called Nine Dash Line within which China has...

How do you solve a problem like Facebook? Salinger Privacy

How do you solve a problem like Facebook?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?*

By now we all know the story: Facebook allowed apps on its social media platform which enabled a shady outfit called Cambridge Analytica to scrape the profiles of 87 million users, in order to serve up targeted ads to benefit the Trump election campaign in 2016.  More than 300,000 Australian users of Facebook were caught up in that particular example of data harvesting, despite only 53 Australians using the app.

Sitting here in Australia, you might be thinking: So what? I never saw a Trump ad, or if I had I would have ignored it because Im not in America. Or even if the same thing happened here, its just ads anyway, I can make up my own mind.

But thats not the whole story.  The Facebook scandal is about so much more than serving up ads in a foreign election campaign.  Facebook, and other companies involved in data mining and analytics, are invading our privacy and harming us economically and socially, in ways that are only just starting to become clear.

Its not just the data you choose to share

Up until recently, Facebook has been successful in steering most discussions about privacy towards either information security, or a focus on the controls that users have over what they post, and who they allow to see those posts.  CEO Mark Zuckerberg likes to say that users have choices, and that users stay in control of what they choose to share.

In one sense thats true: you get to choose which photos you post on Facebook, and which inspirational quotes or worthy news stories you share with your friends.

But in another sense its not true at all.  Because the information you post is not the whole story.  Its only the tip of the iceberg of data Facebook has collected about you.

Every time you go online, you leave a trail of digital breadcrumbs.  Facebook has been busily sweeping up those breadcrumbs, and using them to categorise and profile you.  Facebook obviously knows when you click on a Facebook like button; but also, unless a web developer has gone out of their way to find tools to block them, Facebook knows every time you simply look at a website that has a Facebook like button somewhere on it.

So if you only post or like stories about inspirational mountain climbers and funny cat videos, but also do things online that you dont share with your family, friends or work colleagues (like looking at stories about abortion or dealing with infidelity, googling how to manage anxiety or erectile dysfunction, whingeing about your employer in a chatroom, or spending hours reviewing dating profiles, gambling, playing Candy Crush or shopping obsessively for shoes) Facebook has you pegged anyway....

Eggs Are Good for Your Cholesterol "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Chicken as the foundation of a delicious home-cooked meal has been an American mainstay for decades. Not centuries, you might ask? As a matter of fact, up until the 1920s, homesteaders filled chicken coops with chickens to fulfill one main purpose: to produce eggs.

Chickens weren't regarded as much beyond egg production until a new concept featuring chicken as a main course took flight in the late '40s. It was based, not surprisingly, on the food industry's initiative to find more uses for said chickens. Today we have a plethora of chicken recipes, from broth to casseroles to fried, not to mention nuggets. But what happened to eggs?

Eggs became a target based on the faulty premise of the medical establishment that eating too many yolks would drive up cholesterol and pack your carotid arteries with plaque. As recently as 2012, eggs were still being maligned and even deemed as health-damaging as smoking cigarettes, according to a Canadian journal.1 Many still believe this, and it's the misinformation that's damaging health, not egg consumption.

According to a recent study2 led by Nick Fuller at the University of Sydney, Australia, and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, eggs, despite conflicting evidence continuing around the world, are not responsible for heart disease or high cholesterol. In fact, theyre one of the most nutritious foods in your kitchen. When he led the first portion of the study, Fuller wrote that eggs can support several aspects of health, including eye, blood vessel and heart health, healthy pregnancies and fat regulation, noting:

"Despite being vilified for decades, dietary cholesterol is understood to be far less detrimental to health than scientists originally thought. The effect of cholesterol in our food on the level of cholesterol in our blood is actually quite small."3

Whether Two Eggs or a Dozen, Egg Intake Shows No Negative Results

The latest study notes that people with Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes ate a dozen eggs a week for a year, at which point a series of tests showed no negative results whatsoever. Study pa...

The haunting of Law & Order: SVU Overland literary journal

But the most fantastical, fairytale aspect of the show isnt the nature or degree of heinousness of the crimes committed, or the fact that only 10% of victims are black on SVU when FBI figures tell us that number is actually 50%. Its the fact that it portrays the police as a stalwart moral force: always on the side of the vulnerable, always anguished when the legal system fails them, always compassionate and concerned.

MAY 20, 2018

Source: Starship Earth: The Big Picture



Agenda 21, (updated to Agenda 2030), should be a household word. If you dont understand it, you wont see the threat the near future holds for Humanity. Global warming is a myth. The climate IS changing, but cyclicallywith a great deal of interference from the globalists. Theyre helping it along by injecting more chaos and trashing the planet.

With rare exceptions, everything in our world is managed and manipulated toward a single end; our complete and total domination and subjugationif not our outright complete demise. They may as well call it Genocide 2030. Yes, Humans are an endangered species, but few have the courage to accept it. If action isnt taken very soon, there will be no future for Humanity because Humans cannot survive captivity. ~ BP

reblogged from Richard Presser.com, who says

Science, like almost every other field of endeavour, is harnessed to serve the agenda of those who run our world from behind the scenes. An example I have often used is how we are bombarded to believe that we are causing global warming through our burning of carbon (a complete nonsense), and that guilt is being used to help drive people out of the country into the cities, into smaller and smaller apartments, in line with Agenda 21, now the 2030 Agenda. If you still believe in global warming, I recommend you read Ian Plimers incredibly detailed and well researched book or watch one of his videos.

FixedIt: Mass murder is a choice Jane Gilmore

News.com.au is only one of many outlets reporting today that the blame for Dimitrios Pagourtzis choice to take guns to a school and kill people rest on one of his victims. 16 year old Shana Fisher, one of the ten people Pagourtzis shot and killed last Friday, had apparently spurned his advances.

Police are still investigating the details and its far too early to be speculating on motive and circumstance, but whatever comes out in the trial and investigation of the latest mass shooting in American schools. there are no circumstances in which a murdered girl can be blamed for the violence Pagourtzis chose to commit against her, her classmates and her teachers.

Violence is always a choice and victims are not the ones who make that choice.

AGL wont sell Liddell Abbott seethes National News Echonetdaily

The Liddell power station near Muswellbrook, NSW.

SYDNEY, AAP AGL has refused Alinta Energys $250 million offer to buy Liddell Power Station and reaffirmed its decision to close the plant in 2022.

The power giant says it assessed the offer from Alinta and its Hong Kong-based owner, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises, and that the deal significantly undervalues future cashflow from the NSW site.

AGL said the offer is not in the interest of its shareholders and that it will stick to its NSW power generation plan, which includes repurposing the Liddell site to address any capacity shortfall after its closure in 2022.

The energy company last month announced it will spend up to $400 million to build a new gas-fired power station near Newcastle in NSW as part of a plan to help it address the loss in energy supply that could happen as a result of Liddell closing.

AGL has completed a thorough assessment of the offer and, after careful consideration, has advised Chow Tai Fook and Alinta that it will not proceed any further with the offer, the company said in a statement on Monday.

Alinta made its bid for the ageing Hunter Valley power station in April, describing it as a compelling commercial proposition for AGL shareholders.

Treasurer Scott Morrison has previously urged AGL to accept the offer from Alinta to buy the plant, echoing calls from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull who wants the station to stay open until 2025, when the expansion of the Snowy Hydro scheme is online.

On Monday, former prime minister Tony Abbott said the Turnbull government should buy the power station and then on-sell it to Alinta Energy.

My very strong view given that the federal government has effectively now got responsibility for energy security, the government should compulsorily acquire this power station for the price Alinta were prepared to pay and then it should sell it to Alinta, he told 2GB radio.

AGL chief executive Andy Vesey has previously said the board had not been swayed by criticism from the prime minister and senior coalition figures because the decision to close the ageing power plant was based on a rigorous process.

Investors appeared to be pleased with the news, with AGL shares up 0.9 per cent higher to $21.48 after the first half-hour of trade.

Worlds Largest 3D Printer Is Now Able To Print Giant Metal Objects "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By: Markab Algedi / The Mind Unleashed   Melbourne, Australia is now the city that contains the worlds largest known 3D printer. Melbourne based manufacturer Titomic recently displayed their accomplishment by printing a large metal rendering of their corporate logo.

Stopping Adani mine would pose no sovereign risk to Australia The Pen

This article by Michael Koziol (The Sydney Morning Herald 20 May 2018), investigates the Adani coal mine and the claim that cancelling it would create a sovereign risk for Australia, according to the view of former chief economist for the ANZ Bank. Given the source, it is worthwhile reading and considering.

Stopping the Adani coal mine would pose no sovereign risk to Australia, and politicians on both sides have willingly misled people into thinking otherwise, says respected economist Saul Eslake.

The former chief economist of ANZ told Fairfax Media the major parties were abusing the term for political gain when in fact there had been no impact on Australias sovereign rating because of decisions taken on environmental grounds.

In a paper commissioned by the Australian Conservation Foundation, Mr Eslake found there was absolutely no reason the countrys sovereign risk would be affected if a future government stopped the Adani mine proceeding for environmental reasons.

Nor were the banks likely to downgrade Australias risk rating. Banks wouldnt be concerned, because banks dont want to loan to it anyway, Mr Eslake told Fairfax Media in an interview.

The verdict by one of Australias most prominent economists, flies in the face of arguments from Labor and the Coalition.

Before the Batman byelection, at which Labor had to woo left-wing voters in inner Melbourne, it was reported Opposition Leader Bill Shorten had to be talked out of outright opposition to Adani by senior colleagues concerned about sovereign risk.

Resources Minister Matt Canavan accused Labor of seeking to trade off our countrys investment reputation for some cheap votes.

In interviews since, Mr Shorten has argued you cant simply ban it and create sovereign risk and said an incoming Labor government would not rip up contracts made by previous governments.

Mr Eslake pointed out there is no contract between the Commonwealth and Adani. He said the term sovereign risk had a specific meaning the chance that a government will default on its debt and politicians were abusing it to confuse and mislead voters.

You cant describe every time a government makes a decision as sovereign risk, otherwise the term has no meaning, he said.

Sovereign risk is not the risk a government might change its mind or make a decision I dont like.

Governments regularly made environmental decisions that did not affect sovereign risk, Mr Eslake said, such as bans on uranium mining, domestic gas controls and logging restrictions.

May 21 #OnThisDay in #Australian #History Our Great Southern Land


1804 - James Bevan (known as 'Warminster') was hanged at Sydney for the rape of eight-year-old Elizabeth Douglas.

1814 - The Van Diemen's Land Gazette on this day listed John Pascoe  Fawkner as aiding and abetting the escape of seven prisoners. Fawkner and Santos, who was apparently the convicts' leader, were tried before three magistrates in August and each sentenced to 500 lashes and three years labour.

1836 - The Stirling Castle, under Captain James Fraser, bound from Sydney to Singapore was wrecked on Swain Reefs off the Queensland coast.

Ditching Adani wont hurt credit rating: expert National News Echonetdaily

CANBERRA, AAP Prominent economist Saul Eslake believes ditching the proposed Adani coal mine in Queensland wont hurt Australias credit rating.

Mr Eslakes new report commissioned by the Australian Conservation Foundation found no evidence that stopping the project on environmental grounds would hurt Australias ability to attract foreign investment.

There is absolutely no reason to think that Australias sovereign credit rating would be in any way affected if a future Australian government were to prevent the Adani Carmichael coal mine from going ahead on environmental grounds, Mr Eslake writes.

Labor opposes the mine, but federal leader Bill Shorten has vowed not to tear up approvals if he won the next election to avoid reducing foreign investment in Australia.

The government claims Mr Shortens opposition to the project will hurt jobs and investment.

ACF chief executive Kelly OShanassy said the report removed the only remaining objection to the government stopping the construction of the mine.

Attempts to justify Adanis dirty Carmichael mine are falling like dominoes and the threats are crystal clear, Ms OShanassy said in a statement.

Australia is being used to justify Gaza killings The Pen

Contributed by Jim Hayes

The world has begun to react against the carnage in Gaza. As the death toll of Palestinians mounted, killed by the guns of the Israeli military, using bullets designed to cause the maximum damage to the flesh, the call to stop echoed around the world.

It led to  last Fridays special meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council, a vote to condemn Israel and for an independent investigation was carried overwhelmingly, only to be vetoed by the United States. True, other nations abstained over the wording of the resolution, wanting to focus on the investigation and not the condemnation of Israel.  Even then, the count was 29 for and 14 abstentions.

Only one country, besides the United States voted against, opposing both the condemnation and move for an independent inquiry, and that was Australia.

That our Australian government should instruct its officials at the United Nations to act in this way is a disgrace. The Australian government has declared itself an accomplice to the killing in our name, and is seen to be backing Donald Trumps assertion that it is the Palestinians themselves who are to blame. This is underlined by the insistence that Hamas must also be the target of any investigation.

Australia has officially accepted the Israeli government line, that it had to do what it did, to safeguard its borders. The implication is that it faced a foreign invasion. Never mind that this occurred within what Israel calls its borders. A group of people without guns, is not much of an invasion force. Much less so, when they did not come any closer to the Israeli built wall than a few hundred metres. And how do you categorise this as an invasion force, when many were shot in the back, by snipers taking careful aim, and often going for children?

From the Israeli side, it was at first claimed that Hamas fighters were using this for an armed incursion. If they were there, surely, they would have been the target of the bullets. There were no Hamas casualties or prisoners. Nor were there any Israeli casualties, except one soldier allegedly hit by a stone. When this line...

Worlds Largest 3D Printer is now Able to Print Giant Metal Objects "IndyWatch Feed World"

Melbourne, Australia is now the city that contains the worlds largest known 3D printer. Melbourne based manufacturer Titomic recently displayed their accomplishment by printing a large metal rendering of their corporate logo.

Among the objects listed as capable of being printed by the Australian 3D printer, the CEO of Titomic Jeff Lang reports that it can print a submarine, or wings for an aircraft: soon.

At the Titomic factory in Waverly, Australia in the outer regions of Melbourne, this 9 metre long, 3 metre wide and 1.5 metre tall 3D printer now surpasses the next largest, owned by notorious General Electric. GEs printer is about 5 times less large.

The printer owned by General Electric is capable of printing solid metal objects up to a cubic metre in size, while this Titomic bed can put out parts up to 40 cubic metres in size.

Heres where this story gets realistic: you know their ability to develop this technology came with strings attached.

A government agency in Australia gave out a significant portion of funds to create this 3D printer. It was CSIRO who supplied the funds, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. Remember, Australia is still fully a Commonwealth nation, under the control of Britain in more respects than one may care to admit....
