This is the rare sight preserved. USGS map below has seafloor details with no shortage of large scale structures and volcanic seamounts out there off Fraser Island – any of which could be locii for earthquakes.

Shows the great concern Labor has for the environment. Around 2pm Saturday I saw on ABC News24 TV Senator Mark Butler addressing the Labor Conference on environment while many seats (75%) in front rows were empty. Has a picture survived online anywhere? I dived for the camera but the scene later was obstructed by a caption. Also heard him saying how the CFMEU were great environmentalists.
Just thinking back to the de-personning of our lighthouses – what net money was saved? – Wondering how useful it would be to have human surveillance at those site now with all the emphasis on border protection, not to mention preventing smuggling and the odd search and rescue event etc.
There has been a negative effect on temperature data – just look at the Cape Otway 90015 record and see the gaps and data degradation after the introduction of AWS in 1994.
And this a world heritage science observing site from the late 1800’s.
US federal investigators say a gunman, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, who killed four marines in a shooting spree in Tennessee had no known links to international terrorism.
Ex-CFMEU organiser Halafihi Kivalu arrested after damning tapes played at commission – I like the way it is his wife saying “get Russians or Lebanese”. Frontrunner for wife of the year award dear girl.
Sorry – second “bad apple” found –
Former Canberra Raiders player and CFMEU official John Lomax arrested – 24 July 2015
In my experience at this blog most of the thousands of spam comments every day quote a GoogleMail address.
I would have thought that with Google’s power they could have shut down or wiped out or minimised these pests in some way. A miniscule sample. Most were posted under gibberish names. Continue reading
This article from the Northern Advocate can not say – amazing
I have never heard of snow that far north in NZ – what can readers recall or find in archives?
The NZ herald reported in August 2011 – Snow falls in Auckland for first time in decades – I commented at the time.
From MichaelSmithNews.com reporting on the TURC –
Watching media about the crash in Chinese stock exchange prices we seldom see chart data putting in perspective the reality of the rapid spike in prices since early 2015.
Why would not the Shanghai index fall so as to substantially remove this rapid price spike? Loud alarm bells should have rung in Govt by early 2015.
Can anybody recall media quite as crazed as this ?
On top of years of ABC – Fairfax media – GreenLabor politicians constantly blabbering about every move made by Prime Minister Abbott.
I wonder if it is anything to do with the appearance today of Labor Leader Bill Shorten before The Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption.
And the ABC article is even more odd because resource extraction is managed by State Governments in Australia – not the Commonwealth. Canberra has a role in approving exports and a raft of other compliance interferences – but the licensing of gas drilling and extraction is done by state Governments.
