Police preach Mick Doohans Sixth Sense theories Motorbike Writer

Queensland Police will this morning (21 July, 2018) preach the road-craft theories of five-time world motorcycle champion Mick Doohan which he calls riders sixth sense.

His theories are presented in a 2016 series of Queensland Government videos teaching riders to recognise and exercise their sixth sense when riding.

The sixth sense is the instinct motorcycle riders develop to read the road and conditions, stay focused and be aware of potential hazards when they ride.

Motorcycle riders from the Springwood Road Policing Unit will be at Springwood Suzuki, 112 Kingston Road, Underwood, Logan City from 9am to 2pm today to preach the sixth sense to riders.DayGlo Queensland Police witnesses mick

In a police press release, Senior Sergeant Michael Carige says they will discuss the potential risks of riding in urban streets, hinterland and rural roads, and the factors that can impact rider safety.

Police will be happy to answer questions you might have about motorcycle safety, the release says.

Representatives from the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Logan City Council will also attend.

Sixth sense videos

The five videos in the Sixth Sense series represent Micks theories on riding on the road, even though we believe Mick rarely does.

In fact, Mick isnt featured in any of the videos riding sequences which are performed on some of the most scenic and challenging roads in South East Queensland.

Controversially, Mick also doesnt recommend advanced rider training with professionals.

Instead, he suggests riders already have an innate sixth sense; that unique instinct all riders share that helps us read the road, the conditions, the potential hazards and stay focused and in control.

eBay Conducting a 'Mass Layoff' in the San Francisco Bay Area "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


In a notice to the California Employment Development Department, eBay said that it plans to slash nearly 300 jobs from Bay Area locations by July 20. The company, which called the cuts a mass layoff, said that it informed those being laid off at the end of June, according to The Mercury News, which obtained a copy of the notice. The layoffs will span eBays locations in San Jose, San Francisco, and Brisbane, according to the report. The San Jose office has been affected most by the layoffs, with 224 of the cuts coming to that location.

The online auction sites decision comes after eBay has been experiencing some problems in its business. While the companys revenue was up to $9.6 billion last year from $9 billion in the prior year, it took a loss of $1 billion. In the first quarter of this year, eBays profits slipped 60.7% year over year to $407 million.

In online retailing, there can be only one.

Business as usual? "IndyWatch Feed"

Brokers processing

It's 'business as usual' for the mortgage broking industry reported AFG, the country's largest mortgage aggregator, in its media release yesterday.

Or is it?

Certainly there has been no noticeable impact from tighter lending standards on the average mortgage size, which increased to a record $504,900, up 4.3 per cent from a year earlier (and up from $360,000 at the beginning of the data series in March 2010). 

The main strength here was driven by Victoria and Queensland, and this generally mirrors the monthly housing finance figures reported by the ABS

Volumes have eased, however.

Although lodgement volumes increased seasonally to $14.6 billion in the June 2018 quarter, this was only a moderate increase on the equivalent figure from a year earlier (and indeed, AFG's rapid volume growth now appears to have a slowed since 2015). 

New normal

The composition of lending has changed significantly, too.

Investors now comprise 28 per cent of lodgement volumes, well down from 40 per cent at the 2015 peak. 

And interest-only loans comprise less than a fifth of new loans, way down from 59 (fifty-nine!) per cent at peak popularity in 2015. 

Thus some 81 per cent of new borrowers through AFG brokers are now taking advantage of...
