Holocaust Revisionism, Part 2: Ursula Haverbeck and the Letter from Birmingham Jail "IndyWatch Feed National"

Photo from the website of Buelefeld Prison where Ursula Haverbeck is doing time

by Mary W Maxwell, LLB

In 1963, Martin Luther King wrote his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail. It was addressed to eight white religious leaders.  He said:

You deplore the demonstrations that are presently taking place in Birmingham. But I am sorry that your statement did not express a similar concern for the conditions that brought the demonstrations into being..

I would not hesitate to say that it is unfortunate that so-called demonstrations are taking place in Birmingham at this time, but I would say in more emphatic terms that it is even more unfortunate that the white power structure of this city left the Negro community wit...

Labor party leader Luke Foley resigns in Australia in #MeToo alleged inappropriate behavior "IndyWatch Feed National"

Labor party leader Luke Foley resigns over harassment allegations

The leader of the opposition in Australias most populous state was replaced on Saturday after he resigned over a #Metro row sparked by alleged inappropriate behavior.

Former New South Wales (NSW) state Labor party leader Luke Foley resigned on Thursday after being accused of sexually harassing an ABC journalist, four months before a state election he had been in a position to win.

Foley denies the allegations and said he has hired lawyers to sue for defamation over the claims.

NSW Labor deputy leader Michael Daley defeated opposition water spokesman Chris Minns to win the vacant leadership in a caucus meeting on Saturday afternoon.

He promised to build his government on four pillars: investing in schools and hospitals, lowering the cost of living and lowering energy bills.

We will make Sydney more livable, and stop the unfairness and overdevelopment in the planning system, he told reporters in Sydney.

Daley also said his party would re-task $2.2 billion earmarked by the states conservative Liberal government to upgrade sporting stadiums to instead train young people for employment.

Daley will lead NSW Labor to the March 23 election in Australias largest state, but despite Foleys resignation the scandal is likely to dent Labors chance of winning power.

A ReachTel poll in September had Labor and the ruling conservative coalition running neck-and-neck in the state.

The NSW economy accounts for one-third of Australias gross domestic product and at $400 billion is larger than the economies of Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Upcoming Townsville seminar on regional economies in a digitised & globalised world "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

The Economic Society of Australia (Qld), of which Im a Vice President, is hosting an upcoming seminar in Townsville on how regional economies can adapt and thrive in a digitised, globalised world (see flyer below). Local ESA member Matthew Cook has lined up well-known Townsville economists Colin Dwyer and Riccardo Welters to speak on this topic. I understand that, in addition to stimulating discussion of appropriate policy settings to promote regional development, some light refreshments will be provided.

Advertisement Updated

Should governments actively direct people and investment to regional centres with a view to easing congestion in major cities (e.g. via tax concessions or government grants)? Should they invest in super stadiums and new convention centres to stimulate growth, or would it be better to invest those dollars in local schools and hospitals, for example?  Should regional councils push for a decentralisation of state public administration and a relocation of public service jobs to their regions?

This is just a sample of the interesting questions that I expect will be considered in this seminar. I very much suspect the perennial issue of whether there should be a separate state of North Queensland...

Man shot dead after fire and fatal stabbing "IndyWatch Feed National"

Melbourne stabbings: Somali-born Australian inspired by Isil, say police, as group claims attackA man who set a car on fire and stabbed three people one fatally in the Australian city of Melbourne has died in hospital after being shot by police.

Authorities now say they are treating the attack as a terror-related.

The attacker, 31, was shot after confronting officers on a busy city street, authorities said. He was taken into custody in a critical condition.

The two survivors are in hospital, neither are in a serious condition. The suspect has not been named.

Police said they were not looking for anyone further at this early stage.

We dont believe there is an ongoing threat at this stage, but certainly we are treating it as a terrorism incident, said Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton.

He said the suspect, who is of Somali origin, was someone that is known to both local police and federal intelligence, adding it was mainly in respect to relatives who are certainly persons of interest to us.

Somali-born Australian who set fire to a gas-laden truck in the centre of Melbourne and fatally stabbed one person before he was shot by police was inspired by Islamic State but did not have direct links with the group, Australian police said on Saturday.

In an attack described by the state premier as an act of evil, the man sped a utility vehicle down Bourke Street, one of the citys busiest thoroughfares, and then stopped and apparently set it alight before randomly stabbing pedestrians.

A man aged 74, who had been stabbed in the face, died at the scene.

Two other men, aged 26 and 58, are in a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) claimed responsibility for the attack.

Police identified the man responsible for Fridays attack as 30-year-old Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, 31,  whose 21-year-old brother was accused of plotting a mass murder on New Years Eve at Federation Square last year, a city centre hub and popular tourist spot.  He is in jail awaiting trial.

Footage taken by witnesses showed the man lunging with a large knife at police, who shot him in the chest and killed him. Bystanders were yelling at police: Just shoot him, just shoot him.

Police said Shire Alis Australian passport was cancelled in 2015 after an intelligence report he planned to travel to Syria, but an assessment was made that whilst he had radical views, he posed no threat to national security.

I think it is fair to say he (Shire Ali) was inspired. He was radicalised, Au...

Early Bitcoin Pioneer Speculates Who Nakamoto Is, Gives $100 Million in Asset Away "IndyWatch Feed National"

Jeff Garzik, an early pioneer of Bitcoin, has revealed that hes given away over $100 million worth of the asset, but has no regrets about it.

Giving Money to Something He Believes In

Garzik has been in the space since 2010 after reading a blog post about Bitcoin. Writing code for it, he soon became the third-biggest contributor to Bitcoin after Satoshi Nakamoto and Gavin Andresen.

However, in a report with Bloomberg, the Bitcoin pioneer notes that the currency is not what he thought it would be. Yet, despite this, hes proud of what has been achieved so far. So much so, that in a bid to spur software work on he gave 15,678 Bitcoins away about seven years ago in developer bounties. At current prices thats around $100 million.

Garzik recalls that when Bitcoin reached $1 in 2011 a party was held to celebrate the milestone, adding it was a question whether this thing would survive at all. And theres no question of that today.

Yet, while Nakamotos idea of Bitcoin being used as private money hasnt materialised yet, Garzik is fine with it being treated as a store of value.

It is an organism, its something that evolves, he added. It hasnt evolved in the direction of high-volume payments, which is something we thought about in the very early days: getting merchants to accept Bitcoins. But on the store-of-value side its unquestionably a success.

Will the Real Nakamoto Please Stand Up

Having worked closely, if only online, with Nakamoto, Garzik thinks he knows who it may be.

Eating Out: Two Tables Cafe (Pizza for Dinner edition) "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

I've posted before about my love of Two Tables Cafe. They recently changed their opening hours during the week from breakfast/lunch to dinner time. The highlight of their dinner menu is definitely the pizzas! There are three flavours, plus their garlic bread. The menu also has burgers, acai bowls, desserts, and there are normally a couple of pasta specials. But let's talk about pizza.

First up, their garlic bread. Which is basically a garlic pizza. This is lovely, salty, and garlicky. It is basically an entire pizza on it's own though, which can be challenging if you are one person eating this and another pizza, but I can report that leftovers are excellent. All pizzas from here pass the important leftover test (they are excellent cold the next day).

Garlic Bread at Two Tables Cafe


My favourite pizza of all is the Melanzane. This has BBQ sauce, eggplant, pumpkin, and onion on it and it is divine! One of the best pizzas I have ever had. This is the one I definitely recommend that everyone must eat.

Melanzane at Two Tables Cafe


The Pomodori is a classic combination of tomato, olives, and sesame cheese. It is savoury and salty, with the sesame cheese giving a lovely creamy contrast.

And finally, the Carciofi. I got this to take away when they had a two for one special on World Vegan Day, so I got a couple of pizzas to take home to my family. This one is artichokes and mushrooms with pinenuts and aioli, and is really great.

Tiny Dog Was Going To Be Shot Because Shelter Thought No One Would Want Her "IndyWatch Feed National"

One look at Martha and rescuers knew she was special.

From the white tuft of fur on her head to her enormous brown eyes and permanent grin, the Chihuahua-maltese mix was one in a million.

But the little dog nearly didn't make it to safety.

Martha was picked up as a stray and brought to an overcrowded rural shelter in Australia, where staffers thought the kindest thing to do was put 12-year-old Martha out of her misery. Luckily, rescuers with Pets Haven Animal Shelter disagreed.

Martha was dumped in a high-kill pound, Pets Haven Animal Shelter wrote on Instagram. The ranger was going to shoot her as he didnt think anyone would want her.

Pets Haven rescuers pulled the little dog out of the shelter at the very last minute saving her from an untimely death. Finally safe, veterinarians discovered that Marthas missing patches of fur and itchy skin were the least of her issues.

A thorough workup revealed that Martha was suffering from a disorder known as dry eye and a severe heart murmur, and was entirely deaf. Martha needed such expensive and time-consuming treatment that the rescue deemed her unfit for adoption.

Riders urged to check motorcycle spokes "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Riders have been urged to check the spokes on their motorcycle wheels more frequently in the wake of one rider finding his badly handling bike had 10 loose spokes.

The result of loose spokes can be poor handling and can cause rapid tyre deflation on tubeless tyres.

Brisbane rider Mark Taylor says he had loose spokes on his four-month-old BMW R 1200 GS tightened during a tyre change at 3000km.

He had only ridden another couple of thousands kilometres before 10 spokes came loose again, causing the rear end to slide around.

Loose spokesMark and his GS

The bike nearly bucked me off coming down a mountain road and started to oversteer in the corners, he says.

It scared the life out of me. I thought I was going to buy the farm.

The dealer confirmed its a faulty wheel with 10 loose spokes.

BMW Motorrad Australia have no replacements, so my bike will be off the road for up to five weeks until a new wheel comes from Germany.

Other riders on BMW internet forums have also complained of the same issue.

We contacted BMW Motorrad Australia who advised there is no safety recall on this issue.

Mark is not happy and has contacted the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission seeking a safety recall on the model.

Ancient cures for modern times: Bridging the health care gap in Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

Aboriginal healers are bringing their 60,000-year-old tradition into medical clinics across Australia. Working alongside doctors and other health care providers, the traditional healers known as Ngangkais are offering their ancient and powerful traditional healing methods in mainstream health settings. Traditional healers have been working in their own communities for thousands of years with amazing results, and now they are sharing their wisdom and filling the gaps of Western medicine in South Australia's Royal Adelaide Hospital and many other rural clinics around the country. In South Australia, a policy of cultural respect in the public health system supports Indigenous patients to request a Traditional Aboriginal Healer and so today we can see Aboriginal traditional medicine and Western medicine working hand in hand.

Pamela Anderson Speaks Up Against the #MeToo Movement, Leaving Modern Feminists Outraged "IndyWatch Feed National"

Former Playboy model and Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has attracted a great deal of attention following an interview on Sunday with Australias 60 Minutes. During the Interview, Anderson voiced her controversial opinions regarding the most recent feminist movements.

In all fairness, Anderson included a disclaimer during the conversation, stating, Im going to speak my mind. Im sorry, Im not politically correct. However, many believe that her comments went a step further than just pushing the boundaries on political correctness. When discussing the most recent wave of feminism and the battle for womens rights, Anderson states that she believes that feminism today is a bore.

I think (Playboy) was very empowering and no one forced me to do anything, explained Anderson. I think this feminism can go too far Im a feminist but I think that this third wave feminism is a bore, I think it paralyzes men I think that this Me Too movement is a bit too much for me. Im sorry, Ill probably get killed for saying that.

Pamela Anderson isnt the first female celebrity to take a stance against the Me Too movement in this way. Earlier this year French film start Catherine Deneuve made news when she referred to the #MeToo movement as a witch hunt. Her opinions were met with great resistance, leading her to write a letter in the French newspaper Liberation apologizing to the victims that may have felt attacked by the statement.

Australian police said the knife attack was an act of terror, revealing that the deceased suspect was originally from Somalia and was known to intelligence agencies.

The attack during the afternoon rush hour brought central Melbourne to a standstill. Hundreds of people watched from behind barricades as police tried to apprehend the attacker.

Police said the man got out of a pickup truck, which then caught fire, and attacked three bystanders with a knife. He also attempted to attack police who arrived on the scene before being shot in the chest by an officer.

The suspect died later at a hospital. One of the victims also died, while the two others were hospitalized.

Police said the attackers vehicle contained several barbecue gas cylinders in the back. A bomb squad rendered them safe without any exploding.

Victoria state police Commissioner Graham Ashton said the suspect, who was originally from Somalia, was known to police and the incident was being treated as terrorism.

From what we know of that individual we are treating this as a terrorism incident, Ashton told reporters, adding that the police counterterrorism command was working on the case, as well as homicide detectives.

Hes known to police mainly in respect to relatives that he has which certainly are persons of interest to us, and hes someone that accordingly is know to both Victorian police and the Federal intelligence authorities, he said.

The attack occurred on the eve of a busy weekend in Melbourne, with a major horse race scheduled for Saturday and a national league soccer match the following day. Sunday is also Remembrance Day, when memorial ceremonies for World War I are held.

Ashton said police were doing security reassessments of these events in light of whats occurred, but there was no ongoing threat were currently aware of in relation to people surrounding this individual.

Japan, US Prepare Plans for Conflict with China in East China Sea "IndyWatch Feed National"

In recent months, we have seen increased military provocations by the US on the edge of Chinas territorial waters. More worrying however, if the fact the US are attempting to drag Japan into their geopolitical chess match. In addition to this, British Royal Naval ships have also being used to provoke China in near the Xisha Islands in the South China Sea.

All of this is happening amid a backdrop of a new US-led international trade war, in which the Trump Administration is attempting to renegotiate the legacy system of globalization and multilateralism, and into a new phase of nationalist-oriented neomercantilism, and possibly new regional power blocks. For this reason, its difficult to know exactly how much of this sabre rattling is part of the the new realignment, and how much represents a genuine American thirst for a new world war.

Regardless, Japan remains the key power-balancer in the East Asia region, and which direction it swings will likely determine to over-arching direction of events. For this reason, its important to keep an eye on this recent development (see below).

Southfront reports

The US and Japan appear to be preparing for a conflict with China over the Senkaku Islands, according to News Corp Australia.

The tiny islands are located between the northern tip of Taiwan and the Japanese home islands and have been under dispute for a while, however they appear to be heating up.

Beijing claims that the islands are part of its historical inheritance. According to the Australian outlet, Chinese fishing boats are continuously performing aggressive incursions, in a way that they appear to be organized as a state militia. The Chinese coast guard was also recently militarized and is seeing tensions in the East China Sea.

Reportedly, Japan and the United States are drawing up battle plans to enable their forces to fight together against any Chinese incursion.

After taking on fuel, it was heard to fly to Oakey at low level.  The Blackhawk was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Ausy1102".

Meanwhile, also on Friday 9 November, there was another visit into Rockhampton Airport by a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air.  It was identified as A32-372 and was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Torch 22".

It appeared to arrive into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns, via a missed approach at Mackay Airport.  After a couple of hours on the ground, A32-372 departed originally to Oakey, flying South via the Queensland coast.  When near Bundaberg, it changed to complete low-level airwork in the area before completing more airwork off Hervey Bay.  It then landed at the Sunshine Coast.

Of interest, as reported below, A32-372 had flown North to Townsville from RAAF Base East Sale via Roma Airport as "Hudson 32" on Wednesday 7 November.

Soon afterwards a mutiny by German sailors at Kiel merged with other uprisings and quickly escalated into a full-scale rebellion against the imperial state, sparking the abdication of the German Kaiser and the proclamation of a workers republic on 9 November 1918.

Trumps trade war has seen US imports of Chinese goods hit with the initial tariffs fall by 30% "IndyWatch Feed National"

Research from UBS shows President Trumps tariffs on Chinese goods are having a material effect on US-China trade.

China shipping containers

The analysts reviewed US import data for $34 billion of products that fell within the first tranche of US tariffs on July 6.

,

And the decline has been sharp and unambiguous:

ubs_a copylargeCensus/UBS

The modest uptick in September data, however, gives us hope that the adjustment period for these imports has now drawn to an end, UBS said.

It was a similar story for products in the second tranche of tariffs on an additional $US16 billion worth of goods, which was implemented on August 23.

US imports of those products fell by 32% in August and September. However, the figure is overstated because imports of those items jumped in July.

The fall relative to the May levels is a more modest but still large 20%, UBS said.

The results from the first round of tariffs raise an obvious question: what will happen to imports on the $US200 billion of additional tariffs that were implemented on September 24?.

Because of the more recent time frame, UBS said its too early to calculate what the negative effects are.

Read more: Goldman Sachs just named a new crop of partners. Heres a list of the bankers who joined one of the most exclusive clubs on Wall Street

The analysts noted that imports of the goods in those tranches accelerated sharply in the three months prior to implementation.

However, not all of that would can be attributed to customers stocking up before the tariffs came into effect. For one thing, imports were already picking up in July before the third tranche was announced.

Trumps Policy Starts to Backfire on American Consumers, Companies Operating in China
By Wang Jiamei
Global Times
2018/11/8 23:28:41

US President Donald Trump may think a trade war will force manufacturers to move their production chains away from China. But in fact, his attempt will only come back to bite the US.

The damage the trade war between China and the US might do is starting to have an impact on US businesses operating in China. About 85 percent of US companies have been suffering trauma from the combined tariffs, according to the Special Report on the Impact of US and Chinese Tariffs conducted by the American Chamber of Commerce in South China between September 21 and October 10.

The study surveyed 219 companies from not just China or the US but also many other markets like Canada, the EU, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Roughly 95 percent of the companies have operations in China. The damage is not just limited to US businesses. Nearly 80 percent of the respondents have experienced a serious impact or negative impact from the trade war on their business operations, with nearly half of them losing market share as a result, according to the study.

The Trump administration intends to hit the Chinese economy by forcing US manufacturers to retreat from the country and reconfigure their supply chains. The goal of disrupting production chains in China through a trade war is simply delusional.

For one thing, few companies would be willing to give up the Chinese market with its huge consumption potential. Giving priority to the Chinese market, most of the companies surveyed see the expansion of the Chinese market as one of the most important remedies for the additional tariffs, the study showed.

Moreover, for many businesses operating in China, the cost advantage of a mature and integrated supply chain, plus relatively low labor costs, is enough to offset the additional tariffs.

Otherwise, it could be extremely challenging and time-consuming for companies to relocate manufacturing lines out of China and to find new suppliers that meet all their production requirements. Issues like that are also likely to raise costs.

But either way, industries...

Effectiveness of an improved form of insecticide-based diatomaceous earth against four stored grain pests. "IndyWatch Feed National"

PMID:  Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2018 Jun ;25(17):17012-17024. Epub 2018 Apr 7. PMID: 29627963 Abstract Title:  Effectiveness of an improved form of insecticide-based diatomaceous earth against four stored grain pests on different grain commodities. Abstract:  The effectiveness of Grain-Guard, an improved form of diatomaceous earth (DE), with low risk to the environment, was evaluated against the storage pests Liposcelis paeta, Cryptolestes ferrugineus, Rhyzopertha dominica, and Tribolium castaneum on four grain commodities, wheat, rice, maize and sorghum. The overall mortality of stored grain pests increased with the rise of application rate and exposure intervals of diatomaceous earth and decreased over 120 days of post-treatment period. Our results revealed that mortality of adults 14 days post-disclosure was>80% on wheat at the start of post-treatment than rice, maize, and sorghum, respectively. During the first 60 days of post-treatment, adult mortality increased, whereas later on, a steady decrease in adult mortality was observed. Considerable differences in dose rates were observed on mortality levels along with grain commodities. Following 14 days of exposure, all adults of four species were dead on wheat at 100 ppm and on rice at 150 ppm except maize and sorghum. The suppression of progeny was noticeably higher at the beginning of post-treatment duration while after 60-days of post-treatment, progeny numbers started to increase with the rise in post-treatment durations. This new improved DE formulation was found to be effective at dose rates that are extensively lower than required with previous DE formulations and will contribute to lower the risk of health and environment.

Scientists resurrect ancient enzymes "IndyWatch Feed National"

In the 1990 Michael Crichton novel Jurassic Park, scientists resurrect extinct species, with disastrous, page-turning consequences. But what if the scientists hadn't wanted to re-create whole organisms, just a part of their long-lost molecular machinery? This is in essence what real-life researchers report they have done in a new paper published online Oct. 22 in the journal Nature Catalysis. The molecular machinery in question are proteins called enzymes, and they are life's answer for how to speed up chemical reactions like the digestion of food or the breakdown of toxins. Engineers are interested in using these versatile natural machines to speed up industrial chemical reactions in environmentally friendly ways. Unfortunately, enzymes tend to unravel in the harsh conditions often used in commercial processes. In a quest for more robust enzymes, a team of researchers from Australia, Europe and China turned to an earlier page in life's history. Previous research from a different...

Weyba NBN Tower "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Our organisation is lobbying our Federal Member Llew OBrien to advocate on behalf of our community to have a fixed line nbn service provided to bring Weyba Downs in line with neighbouring communities in place of the proposed wireless technology that is unlikely to deliver fast reliable internet, and to avoid the proposed 51 metre tower to be located just 900 metres from the lakes edge which will be a blot on Lake Weyba forever more.

With a federal election looming it is a great time to implore Mr OBrien to act on behalf of his constituents.

Excellent, one wonders why it has taken so long to make one of these?! When I was a kid they switched from horse drawn milk floats to electric milk floats, that was back in the 50s!!! Seems like no progress has been made since then. They had no solar back then, just batteries & the batteries were not as good as they are now; those milk floats covered a large area carrying a lot of weight! What happened from then until now???!!!

Noam Chomsky condemns Trump for pulling out of landmark nuclear arms treaty "IndyWatch Feed National"

 

President Donald Trump recently announced plans to pull the United States out of a landmark nuclear arms pact with Russia in a move that could spark a new arms race. President Ronald Reagan and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in 1987. The INF banned all nuclear and non-nuclear missiles with short and medium ranges. The treaty helped to eliminate thousands of land-based missiles. We speak to world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author Noam Chomsky about the significance of the INF treaty and the impact of Trumps plan to pull out.

The Happy-go-Lucky Girl I had Pre-HPV Vaccine is Gone Forever "IndyWatch Feed National"

Chelsea: HPV vaccine survivor from Scotland.

HPV vaccines: My daughters lost years

by Fiona Mackenzie, Cromdale, Grantown on Spey, Highlands of Scotland
SaneVax.org

Chelsea had 2 injections of Cervarix in the fall of 2012 before we went to Australia.

A few months after we returned, we took her in for the third jab.

The GP practice stated that they didnt stock Cervarix any longer, but would check whether they could use Gardasil to finish the series.

The next week in May 2013 she had her final vaccination, but it was Gardasil, not Cervarix.

I did not question this because I trusted the doctor to protect her health.

However, looking back I had so little information to go on at the time, I certainly should have questioned the decision to mix the two HPV vaccines.

Until after the third injection, Chelsea was a normal healthy girl.

In late August of the same year she started complaining of back pain.

At first, I discounted it but 3 weeks later it had become so serious we had to take her back to the doctor. She was referred for physio, but it did not help.

As time went on, Chelsea became increasingly disabled by her now constant back pain.

By late September she could not manage to get out of bed very often. School attendance became impossible as the pain spread to other joints in her body, mainly her neck, knees and legs.

We were now regular visitors to our local GP. Chelsea was referred for an urgent MRI. The results returned 5 days later showing mild oedema on her anterior spinal column.

Her GP suspected Lyme disease, but the test results came back negative.

On December 3rd 2013, Chelseas GP admitted her to the Childrens Ward. Her symptoms at the time were persistent pain in her back, lower and upper limbs, sleeping problems, loss of grip strength, paraesthesia (tingling, numbness) in her hands, intermittent tingling in her arms and legs, and no reflexe...

Adani water project bypasses full environmental impact assessment against advice "IndyWatch Feed National"

By the ABCs Specialist Reporting Teams Penny Timms and national environment, science and technology reporter Michael Slezak. This article explains, based on of documents obtained under Freedom of Information, that evidence pointing to reasons why Adani should not be given access to billions of litres of water was ignored by the government.

The Federal Environment Department ruled against the advice of the Governments own water experts when deciding Adanis North Galilee Water Scheme, in Central Queensland, did not require a full environmental assessment.

Documents obtained under Freedom of Information (FOI) and provided to the ABC by activist group Lock the Gate Alliance showed the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources wrote to the Environment Department suggesting the project could activate what is known as the water trigger.

The water trigger was established in 2013, specifically to ensure gas and coal mining projects likely to have a significant impact on the countrys water resources, underwent a full environmental assessment.

But in September, the Department of Environment ruled Adanis water project, which has plans to extract up to 12.5 billion litres of water a year from a river in Queensland to support the Carmichael coal mine, did not activate the trigger because it considered the water project separate to the mine.

The new documents show that conclusion was counter to the view of experts in the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, which was expressed to the Department of Environment before it made its decision.

The Department of Environment initially refused access to the documents, only revealing them once Lock the Gate Alliance appealed against that decision.

The submission from the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources read:

The department considers the proposed action could have significant impact(s) on a water resource, in relation to coal seam gas development and large coal mining development, protected under the EPBC Act.

According to the act, that description fits the requirement needed to activate the water trigger.

Warwick Giblin is managing director of consultancy OzEnvironmental and has worked in environmental management for decades.

Mr Giblin told the ABC the FOI document was important.

Its significant on a number of counts, he said.

It said the project could have significant impacts on the water, not just any impacts b...

Roads divide opinions along with forests, study finds "IndyWatch Feed National"

Politicians and planners often sell roads as wholly beneficial to communities. New arteries open up opportunities for employment, connections to markets and access to services such as health care, so the thinking goes. Despite these potential benefits, however, support for new roads isnt universal. Thats a key finding of a recent study of indigenous communities in Malaysia, published Oct. 10 in the journal Human Ecology. Members of the Jahai ethnic group in northern Malaysia. Image by Muhammad Adzha via Wikimedia Commons (CC 2.0). I did not expect such divided opinions, Gopalasamy Reuben Clements, lead author of the study and a conservation scientist who co-founded the research organization Rimba, said in an email. For example, indigenous people living further from the road had much stronger negative opinions of roads, Clements, also an associate professor in biological sciences at Malaysias Sunway University, said. I assumed that most of them would have wanted similar lifestyles of those living nearer to roads! Prior research has documented the environmental dangers that accompany road construction, from fractured wildlife habitats to altered water dynamics. Often, too, the promised social and economic benefits dont materialize the way theyre presented by project proponents. Malayan tiger (Panthera tigris jacksoni) cubs playing.

Studies in Latin America have shown that roads can dramatically alter the livelihoods of indigenous people once a road is built near them, said Clements, who led the research as a doctoral student at James Cook University in Cairns, Australia.

Proven Benefits and Uses of Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Oil) Science Based "IndyWatch Feed National"

Tea tree oil has been used for centuries due to its amazing medicinal and therapeutic properties. The antimicrobial compounds in tea tree oil have many uses and benefits. You can use tea tree oil to cure fungal infections, help cuts to heal quickly, get rid of dandruff, and treat nail infections.

To use tea tree oil on your skin, scalp, or feet, you can add it to a carrier oil and apply to your body. On small areas of skin, tea tree oil can be used as a spot treatment on acne pimples or to disinfect small cuts. You can even add a few drops of tea tree oil to your shampoo if you want to use tea tree oil to soothe an itchy scalp.

In this article, you will learn about the many uses of tea tree oil and why it is one of the best antimicrobial essential oils you can use. At the end of the article, you can find out about precautions to take when using tea tree oil for medicinal purposes.

What is Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Oil) and Where It Comes From

Tea tree oil (also called melaleuca oil) comes from extracting oil from the leaves of the tree Melaleuca alternifolia that grows in Australia. The tea tree plant looks like a tall shrub but can grow into a moderate sized tree.

The journal Clinical Microbiology Reviews reports that tea tree oil contains a number of medicinal compounds. The most prominent antimicrobial compound in tea tree oil is terpinen-4-ol. To use tea tree oil for its therapeutic benefits, tea tree oil should contain at least 30% terpinen-4-ol. (1)

According to research published in 2018, recent scientific studies have confirmed many of the medicinal uses and benefits of tea tree oil. Research has shown that tea tree oil can be used for its antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. (2)

Some scientists have found that tea tree oil is even powerful enough to be effective against many drug-resistant strains of fungi and bacteria. (1, 3)

What is Tea Tree Oil Good For?

The powerful healing compounds of tea tree oil mean that it is useful in addressing a number of health concerns.

As well as containing terpinen-4-ol, researchers have identified a number of other beneficial chemicals in tea tree oil. These include 1,8 cineole, limonene, linalool, and terpineol.

How can you use tea tree oil to treat many ailments? Because tea tree oil is antifungal and antibacterial (...
