Philoria Trip 2018 (2/4): Sphags, Subs and Pseuds Frogging Around

Our second day of the trip took us to New England National Park. An extraordinary place with so many vegetation types and amazing areas to explore. On arrival to the campground, we again set up camp, changed into frogging attire and began our search for the sphagnum bogs, home to the Sphagnum Frog (Philoria sphagnicola). []

Reputation pocitsoq

I got a brand new map in my letter box the other day

Taylor Swift Concert Parking Restrictions at the Gabba.

 

Its called Reputation.

There are so many reputations on this little map.

  • Theres the Iron Duke in the accessibility drop off area,
  • Street corner Jimmy in the Limo and Taxi zone,
  • the Die Hards, the white shoe brigade and the British Navy are in the kiss and ride zones.

The slowest road in town, (thats Stanley St), and Vulture St, rejuvenated by rock and roll, will bring people to the gates of the reputation gig and then carry them away again.

Obviously, Im drawn in by the reputations.

But in the end, I want to get away from reputations and into some actual stories.

Lets have a look at the kiss and ride zones Toohey St and Logan Rd

James Toohey got a reputation as the largest landholder in the area.

Patrick Logan got a reputation as the cruelest tyrant in the land.

Logan joined a regiment with...

Australias renewable energy opportunity- export industry and jobs creation "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

In energy, Australians are already world beaters who have voted with their roofs.

Renewable projects that are planned and under construction in Queensland alone have created more than 35,000 jobs.

Why Australia needs to be a renewable energy superpower  https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/business/the-economy/why-australia-needs-to-be-a-renewable-energy-superpower-20181109-p50f0h.html  Mike Cannon-Brookes , Australia has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to redefine its place in the world through the production of renewable energy. I share a vision with thousands of Aussies who believe we can get Australia to 100 per cent renewable energy. This transition not only benefits the planet it presents one of the greatest economic opportunities for our country in terms of job creation and economic growth over the next 10 to 20 years.

This isnt a pipe dream. Australia is blessed with abundant renewable resources. We have huge open spaces drenched in s...

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.

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.
