Upcoming Townsville seminar on regional economies in a digitised & globalised world Queensland Economy Watch

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.

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...

Exercise Wallaby 2018 - More Spectacular Photos of Volga Dnepr Antonov AN-124 RA-82044 at Rockhampton Airport to take RSAF Apache Helicopters Home Central Queensland Plane Spotting

As mentioned below, on Sunday 4 November, Volga-Dnepr Airlines Antonov AN-124-100 RA-82044 visited Rockhampton Airport, arriving as "VDA1119" direct from Dhaka, Bangladesh.


After parking, the Antonov was lowered into its unique kneeling position and the front then opened.  We have been very fortunate to receive some spectacular images captured as it was loaded with the four Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing AH-64D Apache helicopters which have taken part in the Singapore Armed Force's Military Exercise Wallaby 2018.

Riders urged to check motorcycle spokes Motorbike Writer

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.

However, there is a service campaign and owners are encouraged to contact their dealer if there are concerns, a spokesman says.

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

Australian Army Sikorsky S-70A-9 Blackhawk Helicopter Passes Through Rockhampton Airport as "Ausy 1102" Central Queensland Plane Spotting

On Friday 9 November, an unidentified Australian Army Sikorsky S-70A-9 Blackhawk helicopter was heard passing through Rockhampton Airport.  It appeared to fly in from the North - possibly from Townsville where some are currently based.

File photo

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.

Weyba NBN Tower Friends of Lake Weyba

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.

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...
