I got a bill in Dec.
I did try to communicate with varying Centrelink departments and when the phone did ring through and was answered I was only ever told that I needed to prove I did not owe any money.

Was 24hr carer for my father who had MND. Apparently I was working too.
Dear Centrelink. Absolutely no idea.

So since then I have ignored everything from Centrelink (incl. Mygov).
I have not answered or returned any calls that do not clearly identify the caller.
I do not respond to messages that tell me I have a message on Mygov.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?:

A Visit to South Koreas Park of Giant Penises Global Hobo

I decided to visit South Korea on a whim. Besides their fascination with cheesy boy bands and an apparent aptitude for fried chicken I knew absolutely nothing about the country, but I was starting in Japan and finishing in Vietnam with plenty of time to kill in between so, geographically speaking, it was the logical choice. I jumped on Google and thats where I found it, buried amongst the lists of obscure animal cafes and beautifully built temples, the great Haesindang Park.

A beautiful site of phallic worship, read one review. A bunch of dicks on a cliff, read another. Id heard whispers of such a place, seen an article or two flash across my feeds, but never did I imagine that a visit to the infamous Penis Park would be within my reach. I excitedly began to do my research. The park was four hours away from anything else monumental in a tiny, otherwise unexciting, fishing village that was quite difficult to get to, and in which cheap accommodation was scarce. Was I really going to make this arduous journey and blow my budget on a few carved penises? You bet your sweet bippy I was.

I had a pretty impressive itinerary drawn up for my three-month trek across Asia. I would be taking part in traditional ceremonies, visiting ancient temples, exploring natural landscapes, and eating my way through famous food markets. But when asked what I was most excited about I couldnt help but smirk, because despite all the incredible experiences ahead Haesindang always sprung to mind. As I paid my entrance fee and wandered through the gates I was hit with a wave of dread. Id spent months preparing for, and bragging about, this day, and really, it is just a bunch of dicks on a cliff. What if I had over-hyped it? But as I rounded the bend and the first giggle escaped me, I knew I had nothing to worry about.

Several wooden sculptures peered at me through the trees. Some had faces; exaggerated features carved into the dark wood, not unlike the totems used by the native Americans. Others were simpler, featuring feathered designs which curled around their length. But all of them had one feature in common; the unmistakable hood rounding out the top of each pole giving them their phallic nature. I stood laughing manically on the path for quite some time before moving to inspect them individually, giggling uncontrollably as I neared each one. How on earth did this place come to exist? I managed to quieten down long enough to take a few photos before, eager to learn more, I continued inside.

Sticky floors and Sticky Fingers Overland literary journal

Perhaps we need to start thinking about the external influences that might be present at a live gig. We most definitely need to do this before we start talking about the attire or behaviour of women. The biggest influence on crowds at festivals and intimate gigs is obviously the artists themselves.

For the love of the music Overland literary journal

I saw the hashtag #metoo and listened closely to the stories of other women, but I also distanced myself from those public accounts. I didnt want to admit that the hashtag is mine too. That I feel I do not have autonomy over my own body. That I feel I cant stop others from violating my space.

Zcash Bug Demonstrates the Difficulty of Auditing Complex Cryptocurrencies "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Zcash Bug Demonstrates the Difficulty of Auditing Complex Cryptocurrencies

A recent counterfeiting bug in Zcash demonstrates that the added functionality of so-called second generation blockchains comes at a price. The vulnerability, which existed for years before being patched in October, could have been exploited to generate additional coins. As every major cryptocurrency since Bitcoin has demonstrated, added complexity corresponds with lower security.

Zcash Vulnerability Lay Undiscovered for Years

On Feb. 5, the Zcash team shared a blog post acknowledging the existence of a bug that had been in place since the privacy coin launched. Discovering its existence would have called for a high level of technical and cryptographic sophistication that very few people possess, claimed Zcash developers. While likely true, this admission has provided little comfort to zcash holders, and doesnt augur well for any future bugs that have yet to be discovered. It stands to reason that any elementary exploits in the protocol will have long since been identified. As such, any critical Zcash bug to surface at this stage can be assumed to require sophisticated knowledge to pinpoint.

Australian Banks Fraudulently Collected Fees From Deceased Customers "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Australia's Banking Sector inquiry Reveals Massive Cheating as Banks Collect Fees for Dead Customers

A national inquiry into the misconduct of Australias banking sector has revealed profit-driven malpractice that has shattered customer trust. Some of the countrys largest banks were found guilty of making families homeless and charging fees for non-existent services, sometimes to dead customers. They also caused clients to lose hundreds of millions of dollars through misleading investment advice.

Banks Charge Fees for No Service

The Royal Commission, Australias highest form of public inquiry, spent a year investigating allegations of misconduct by some of the countrys biggest banks including the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), its largest lender. The local banking industry has been plagued by issues of wrongdoing for more than a decade now, Australias public broadcaster ABC reported on Feb. 4.

Commissioner Kenneth Haynes report proposed 76 recommendations, which the government has fully endorsed, leaving unscrupulous parts of the financial sector prone to being swept away by the legislature. Several institutions could be up for criminal charges for charging fees for which no service was rendered.

Banks are Better than Bitcoin (When It Comes to Money Laundering) "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

On September 28, 2018, the Wall Street Journal published a report which claimed that criminals laundered nearly $90 million of proceeds via cryptocurrency exchanges over two years. The piece mainly targeted ShapeShift, a US-based crypto-to-crypto exchange, for facilitating trades without identifying the traders.

In his response, ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees provided convincing examples of how the Journal misconceived everyday transactions as dubious. He also accused the US publication of omitting relevant information and of cooperating with ShapeShift team under pretenses.

While Voorhees understandably defended his firm with facts, no one can deny that criminals use cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to launder money. For instance, darknet Silk Road was Bitcoins first credible use case. In another example, a youth illegally traded $750,000 via his bitcoin exchange service. In another one, a drug trafficking ring in Europe laundered $9.1 million through a Finland-based crypto trading company.

However, banks proved that bitcoin-based criminal activities were peanuts in front of their massively scaled and inhumane financial crimes.

Contrasting Financial Crimes

On September 19, 2018, Denmarks largest bank, Danske Bank, confirmed that its Estonian branch had illegally funneled $230 billion from Russia to Europe. That was 25,000 times more than what ShapeShift allegedly laundered. In fact, that was more significant than the combined market capitalization of cryptocurrencies at that time.

Furthermore, there was a shocking revelation connecting a Danskes financial crime with the death of a Russian lawyer named Sergei Magnitsky. As highlighted by Forbes journalist Frances Coppola, Danske was instrumental in hiding money embezzled by the Putin-led Russian government. That money also included $230 million tax revenue collected from Hermitage Capital Management.

But pot called the kettle back as the Russian government accused Hermitage of tax evasion. CEO Bill Browder attempted to fight the charges with the help...
