Very senior clergy and it is huge news. I got through to a site that reported it last night.

nip - no, if it's true (and both the Oz and the Age are commenting about a major court decision earlier this week which they cannot discuss) it is a biggy. Not sure that it matters but I'll not post the person's name or the crime he was convicted of but it is to do with a senior clergyman and child abuse. Apparently the block is in place because there is expected to be more court action, whether it's an appeal or a new case, due in early next year.

International websites and newspapers have published an important story relevant to all Austral­ians which cannot be ­reported here.

Some online sites also published details, but were subject to what is known as geo-blocking so that readers in Australia are unabl­e to view the reports. The ­details have been widely circulated on social media, as users in Australia and around the world find and post that news online.

Tasmania Police say there is a “zero per cent chance” the pilot of a twin-engine plane that crashed in the state’s rugged wilderness this weekend survived the horror ordeal.


I rather think that "horror ordeal" is quite a bit over the top. I guess that "crash" would not cut it in today's thirst for hyperbole.

Anyone still using an old teflon pan - this article might be of interest. You might want to lay off the stain-repellant Scotchgard as well

While the above article is focused on groundwater in the USA, we have our own issues in Australia with PFAS-impacted groundwater from Dept of Defence locations such as
at Oakey and Williamtown, where recent studies were undertaken

Linear thinking looking for linear responses to what is a non-linear issue.

Now, that's what will doom us. Again.

J - I know he is keen to re-introduce asbestos into the building industry so I had assumed he thought he could use asbestos in the forests as well but no, apparently not .... his solution is to rake the "floors" of the forests ...

No doubt someone talked to him about control burns and clearing the undergrowth and Trumpy's translated that into Nu York talk.
