Retired Brisbane magistrate William John Randall found guilty of child-sex charges "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Randall, who retired just last year from his position as referee in the Small Claims Tribunal after years on the bench, continues to maintain his innocence.

He pleaded not guilty in the Brisbane District Court last week to 18 charges including maintaining a relationship with a child, indecent treatment and sexual assault.

His lawyers cross-examined the victim in the witness box about the allegations, accusing him of fabricating lies about being abused hundreds of times so he could later sue Randall.

However, the jury dismissed this and returned guilty verdicts.

Randall was on Tuesday sentenced to nine years jail, and will be eligible for parole after serving half of that time.

Judge Catherine Muir described Randalls behaviour as shocking and reprehensible.

Extract ABC Australia article on this matter

 

Queensland magistrate William Randall will get a very hard time in jail and will have to be in protective custody. Even in protective custody, he wont be safe. Every time he steps out of his cell, hell be a target.

4.5 to 9 years is a very long time to spend in jail under those circumstances.

William Randall is fortunate not to live in California, where hed be jailed for life, Indonesia, where hed be chemically castrated or worse, or ISIS areas of Syria, where hed be thrown off a building.

Election drive-through voting begins and more Zedlines "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

The Electoral Commission of Queensland is trialling drive-through polling booths in Brisbane's bayside and on the Sunshine Coast.

ECQ elections director Wade Lewis says the idea takes into account Queenslands ageing population and is designed to make voting more accessible for those with mobility issues, especially the elderly and their carers.

Voters in the electorates of Noosa and Oodgeroo who visited the drive-through booths yesterday were pleasantly surprised by the initiative.

BRISBANE [AAP]

Queensland Labor has its nose in front of the LNP with just days left until the state vote.

A ReachTEL poll, for Sky News, has Labor ahead of the LNP 51 per cent to 49, after preferences.

Labor is also ahead on the primary vote, with 34 per cent of Queenslanders saying theyll vote for the incumbent party, to the LNPs 30 per cent. One Nation has 17 per cent support, while the Greens are on 10 per cent.

This is the first time that Labor has gained the lead in a two-party result, in a ReachTEL poll. So its certainly a move, ReachTELs James Stewart has told Sky News.

ReachTEL also polled voters in three marginal seats.

Labor and One Nation are neck and neck in the Labor-held seat of Thuringowa, with both parties on 50 per cent in the Townsville-based electorate.

The contest for the LNP-held seat of Whitsunday has One Nation on 50.5 per cent to Labors 49.5 per cent.

In Brisbanes western suburbs, Labors Local Government Minister Mark Furner is expected to hang on to the marginal seat of Ferny Grove, with the poll suggesting hell manage 54 per cent of the vote, to the LNPs 46 per cent.

Anning defection hits One Nation

But the defection of former One Nation senator Fraser Anning has hurt the partys prospects in the Queensland election, another poll suggests.

A statewide Galaxy poll for The Courier-Mail, conducted late last week, shows two out of five Queenslanders are now less likely to support Pauline Hansons party.

Senator Anning split with One Nation an hour after being sworn in in Canberra, claiming Senator Hanson forced him out, but the One Nation leader says he quit.

The Galaxy poll of more than 1000 Queenslanders showed 41 per cent are less likely to hand their vote to One Nation because of what happened in Canberra.

But it also found 46 per cent of poll respondents werent influenced by the defection, and seven per cent are now more likely to back the party.

Fairy-wrens Sandy Straits and Beyond

I take frequent short trips down to the Mullens foreshore but unfortunately it is not a part of the bay often frequented by shorebirds. It is always beautiful no matter the weather.

I also find the trees that dabble their stems in the water - mangroves - very beautiful.
The other day I took this photo looking north along the shore. The boat would be well up on dry land when the tide went out - and I hope the fisherman had some luck after standing out in the water for so long.

A couple of weeks ago several bloggers posted photos of  Fairy-wrens on this meme. I waited for others to show some of the other very colorful Fairy-wrens but since no one did I went back into my photo archives so that all the overseas birders could get an idea of the variety of such birds you can see.
These first birds are the ones that were posted a few weeks ago - Superb Fairy -wrens. For some reason I have never seen these birds right in my area. According to my birding books they should be here! I saw these ones on a trip out west my sister and I took a few years ago at a place called Mitchell.  I have included photos of the little brown females - which I find difficult to ID.

Thursday & Quicksand "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Post-hardcore pioneers, THURSDAY announce theyre coming out of retirement with their first run of shows in Australia since 2012. Officially reforming in 2016, theyll bring the tour to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide in March 2018. Joining them on all dates is influential New York City post-hardcore legends, QUICKSAND.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 12pm this Friday, October 13.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning tomorrow at 10am, October 11.

For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: livenation.com.au.

Revered for their anguished lyrics, chiming guitars and explosive stage presence, Thursday have been a house-hold name among punk and rock fans since their debut release, Waiting, 18 years ago. Coming out of New Jersey in 1999 at the precipice of the post-punk movement, Thursday were quick to gain the attention of fans and labels with their raw, emotive sound. However, it wasnt until their 2001 album, Full Collapse, that they fully defined a genre.

Over the course of their active years, Thursday produced six eclectic albums. None were more representative of their distinctive sound than 2003s War All The Time. Armed with the backing of major label, Island Records, the album continued to elevate them as one of the most complex and exciting bands of the decade. After pioneering the post-hardcore genre, the band officially disbanded in 2013.

Emerging from the New York City hardcore scene of the 90s, QUICKSAND delivered a masterclass over two albums on what would be a stylistic blueprint for many bands to follow. They will release Interiors this November, which many attribute as their best album to date. It arrives deliberately unannounced, two decades after the pioneering post-hardcore quartets last album. Made completely on the bands own terms, Interiors has a power, strength and subtlety that will likely stun you. There are no wasted notes, no flab, and no excess whatsoever. It is absolutely perfect.

Catch these two genre-defining acts together this March!.......................

The Black Swamp & Massic "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

 

Witches, wolves and cosmonauts

Teaming up for this double headliner launch show are Australian sludge-metal outfit The Black Swamp and hardcore groove act Massic.

This show marks the beginning of the touring cycle for TBSs new release Witches. The EP is the recording debut of new vocalist Luke Hosking (Azreal), who slots in seamlessly with the band once again channelling the riff driven influences of Black Sabbath through to Crowbar. With anthem-like choruses and infectious grooves, this new offering and their established back catalogue will have heads nodding in The Zoo.

With their debut LP Redshift, Massic has captured an honest, raw and abrasive sound, delivering 33 minutes of musical intensity, massive riffs and head-banging grooves. Theyve quickly built a reputation for their live performance, delivering their sound with as much conviction, passion and energy as physically and mentally possible. This will be on full display and then some as they continue their emergence into the Australian heavy music stratosphere.

This launch isnt just the start of new musical escapades, its a rallying point for Flaming Wrekage and the Swamp, with the former celebrating 1 year since the release of their thrash-groove opus From Flesh to Dust. Brisbane is the first in a string of national shows under the banner of the Witches & Wolves Tour seeing the quartet continue the campaign for Flesh. With many miles underfoot, the Wrekage crew certainly know how to incite a bangover wherever they roam. Prepare your necks for a ferocious thrashing!

Making their fitting debut at the Zoo is Elephant a heavy metal band derived from members of hard rock riff-masters The Flame Fields. Excellent musicianship abounds in this herd; make sure to stampede in early and bear witness to the beginning of their mammoth-like riffage!

Both local and international human rights groups have accused Turkey of using the coup as an excuse for silencing political opposition within the country. 

Turkey is currently denying the accusations.

Protesters occupy Adani Headquarters in Townsville "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

Townsville, 20th November: Twenty people are occupying the Adani Headquarters in Townsville, including three people who have locked themselves together in front of the entrance to prevent Adani workers accessing their office.

Donna, Will and Tully, who are locked on, are taking this action today to send a clear message that Adani should not be given $1 billion of taxpayer money and that the Carmichael coal mine should not go ahead.

Will Hamilton, 66, currently locked on and a former property developer from Brisbane, says With all its negative consequences on our environment, Australians all over the country are expressing their total rejection of the Adani Coal mine proposal. We take this action in the belief that others will become more aware of these issues and join us in raising their voices against the Adani coal mine proposal.

Protest against Adani has been amplifying across Australia, including on the ground at the construction site and at their headquaters in Townsville. In recent weeks several people from Frontline Action on Coal have been arrested occupying the Adani offices and disrupting construction of the Adani-owned railway.

Adani is a key focus of the Queensland election, with Palaszczuk earlier this month promising to veto the $1 billion loan to Adani to build the railway. Recent polls have shown that two thirds of Queenslanders oppose taxpayer money funding the Adani railway. Despite this, the LNP have not ruled out providing $1 billion of taxpayer money to Adani.

Donna Smit, 48, a systems analyst from Queensland who is also currently locked on, says I am here today because our Governments and corporations are failing us. Ordinary people taking extraordinary action is the corner they have painted us into, and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to stop Adanis catastrophic mine from being built.

Tully Doole, 22, is from the south coast of NSW and is worried about the future. She says I dont want to be responsible for the extreme weather, the bush fires, the floods, the droughts and the death of the great barrier reef.

Suing over motorcycle crash too costly "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

A rider who crashed on a badly repaired road has rejected suing the authority that knew of the problem because it would be too costly.

Sydney rider Stephen Thomas, 69, crashed his 2011 Honda VFR800X Crossrunner at 50km/h on the shoddy roadworks on Mt Glorious in Brisbanes hinterland on October 10, 2017.

Transport and Main Roads (TMR) knew about the slippery molten tar surface after being alerted to the problem by riders and a report on this website.

Even on mild days, the surface had molten tar and was treacherous for riders.

Melting tar claims first crash victim Mt Glorious costlySub-par roadworks at Mt Glorious a sticky mess of tar

TMR responded to the complaints by placing an electronic 50km/h warning sign on the corner, but it didnt help Stephen.

His bike low-sided into a guardrail and fell over, breaking his leg.

Stephen didnt realise and rode home 1000km to Sydney where he later found the extent of his injuries.

EP 228: The Scientists "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Ep 228 Instagram

Photo: Mark Louttit

The Scientists

Recorded and mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 4th November 2017

The Scientists first formed in Perth as The Exterminators and then The Invaders in 1977. Once they became The Scientists in 1978, they then released their first single Frantic Romantic/Shake (Together Tonight) in June 1979 on the D.N.A. Records label. After a debut LP (commonly referred to as The Pink Album) and a number of lineup changes, the band relocated to Sydney in 1982.

This change in scenery and lineup also saw The Scientists change musical direction. Pop-infused punk rock was traded in for a more psychedelic style of swampy, blues rock n roll. The band was signed by Au Go Go Records who released two singles as well as the influential Blood Red River LP in the space of a year, making them one of Australias most popular independent bands at the time. But another move was soon on the cards.

The lost generation of mens tennis: or where are the freaks? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

My favourite mens tennis bit of trivia is that Bernard Tomic is closer in age to Novak Djokovic than Djokovic is to Roger Federer.

Tomic is 23, was born in October 1992; Djokovic is 28, was born in May 1987 and is 5 years and 5 months older than Tomic; Federer is 34, was born in August 1981 is 5 years and 9 months older than Djokovic.

I like it because it reminds me why whenever Federer is asked about his favourite or toughest opponent he invariably talks about three generations of players those who where there when he arrived, like Sampras and Agassi, those who arrived at the same time as he did Hewitt, Safin and Roddick and then he mentions Nadal and Djokovic (Nadal is 4 years and 6 months younger than Federer).

We think of Djokovic and Federer as peers in a way which we would never think of Djokovic and Tomic.

That Djokovic and Federer, although separated by nearly 6 years, have become perhaps the greatest rivalry in the history of professional mens tennis says a great deal about both. That Federer has been able to keep playing as well as he has for so long is amazing, and that Djokovic began playing as well as he did so early is worth remembering when valuing his greatness.

Remember as Djokovic begins his quest for a 6th Australian Open that he won his first title 8 years ago in 2008. He was 21, and it was no real shock. Sure he upset Federer in the semis, but Federer was suffering glandular fever and Djokovic even then was far too good to pass up an opportunity to beat a wounded Federer.

But Djokovic was the 3rd seed at the time, had lost to Federer in the previous years US Open and made the semi finals of both the French Open and Wimbledon in 2007. He was already very good, even if he was almost more known for his ability to impersonate other players than his tennis ability:



And yet now no one expects 21 year olds to win.

And the usual talk is that, well the game has changed, and older players have an advantage because the physicality of the sport etc etc.

Bollocks I say.

In my view, Federer, Nadal, Djokovic are better than the usual level of players who dominate the circuit for periods (usually 3-5 years), and the players a few years younger than Djokovic are just not good enough.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are freaks, those who are a few years younger than Djokovic are not.

***
This year, for the second year in a row my summer holidays ended with a trip to Brisbane to watch the Brisbane International tennis tournament.

As with last year, we went to see Federer. Although to be fair, we also went because we knew there was a decent field assembled.

I am admittedly a Federer fanatic, but I dont have a....
