Power to the People - ABC 4 Corners Report 07/07/2014 Newspapers, telecommunications and the entertainment industry have all felt the chill winds of change brought on by new technology. Now science is revolutionising power generation. Technology is making alternative sources of energy cheaper, more user-friendly and, crucially, it's decentralising production to the rooftops of homes and commercial buildings across Australia. So why is the Federal Government moving away from its commitment to renewable sources of energy? Why would it consider reducing renewable energy targets, favouring greenhouse-gas emitting coal and gas? In part the answer is simple. Price. As the Prime Minister explained recently: "All of us should want to see lower prices and plainly at the moment the renewable energy target is a very significant impact on higher power prices." But the renewable energy industry warns that while coal and gas might enjoy a price advantage now, renewables are the future: "The Government has an ideological agenda. They want to carve out the impact of renewable energy on the network and they want to stop renewable in their tracks." John Grimes, Australian Solar Council Next on Four Corners, reporter Stephen Long documents the revolution in power generation taking place across the globe. He travels to California, where successive governments have legislated to have one third of the state's power come from renewable sources. He meets the Australian entrepreneur who left home to create a multi-million-dollar solar company in the US. Stephen Long visits a massive solar farm that not only takes energy from the sun, but can also store it in a massive salt crystal tower. In time, the farm will power the bright lights of Las Vegas. Meanwhile, back in Australia the Federal Government is being lobbied by power producers using coal and gas to wind back the renewable energy targets that would see 20 per cent of this country's power generated by renewables by the end of the decade. Little wonder they want the targets lowered. The explosion in wind farms and solar rooftop panels in homes across Australia has already cut the demand for electricity and left them with gold-plated infrastructure that can no longer be justified. For one Queensland company, the decentralisation of power production has been devastating: "In the last five years of our generation business, we've made nothing." All this leaves the Federal Government in a difficult situation. If it decides to wind back the policy clock and downplay renewables, it will lose a high-tech cutting-edge industry while it props up old-style big polluters. As economist and author Jeremy Rifkin puts it, the choice is stark: "It's ridiculous. Australia's the Saudi Arabia of renewable energy. There's so much sun, there's so much wind off the coast, and so it makes absolutely no sense when you have an abundance of renewable energy, [to] rely on a depleting supply of fossil fuels with all of the attendant consequences to society and the planet." Power to the People, reported by Stephen Long and presented by Kerry O'Brien, goes to air on Monday 7th July at 8.30pm on ABC1. http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/2014/07/07/4038488.htm

Layoffs in Newspaper Publishing Media Watch extract 17 Jun 2013

(2:11) It's jobs gone all through the publishing industry, with work at the Newcastle Herald being outsourced to the Phillipines and India, as well as formerly New Zealand. This is why whenever there is a campaign on with two sides, the Newspapers will be on the side of money. Those corporations pushing the thing residents oppose will have more money to spend on newspaper advertising than the groups opposing them who run cake stalls and sausage sizzles to try to raise some funds. This is a brief extract from the ABC's MediaWatch program, Monday 17 June 2013.

Shares in Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX: NCM) were down 0.1% to $20.74 on Thursday after the company released its March 2018 quarterly report. The stock is down 10% since the start of the year. The main event during the period – and the primary cause of the price drop – was the collapse of a tailing dam wall that caused a halt and subsequently a slowdown of production at the company’s Cadia project.

BHP Billiton is an Anglo-Australian multinational mining, metals and petroleum company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. It is the world's largest mining company measured by 2013 revenues. BHP Billiton was created in 2001 through the merger of the Australian Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited (BHP) and the Anglo–Dutch Billiton plc. The result is a dual-listed company. The Australia-registered BHP Billiton Limited, which has equal financial share in the company, has a primary listing on the Australian Securities Exchange and is the largest company in Australia measured by market capitalisation. The UK-registered BHP Billiton Plc has a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. It had a market capitalisation of approximately £41.5 billion ($69.5 billion) as of 19 August 2014. On August 19, 2014, BHP Billiton announced the company would be split in two. A newly formed entity named NewCo would house the company's non-core assets. Capitalized at $15 billion, the new entity would be listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.

Perth
 
50:12
Perth /ˈpɜrθ/ is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia. It is the fourth most populous city in Australia, with an estimated population of 1.97 million (on 30 June 2013) living in Greater Perth. Part of the South West Land Division of Western Australia, the majority of the metropolitan area of Perth is located on the Swan Coastal Plain, a narrow strip between the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp, a low coastal escarpment. The first areas settled were on the Swan River, with the city's central business district and port (Fremantle) both located on its shores. Perth is formally divided into a number of local government areas, which themselves consist of a large number of suburbs, extending from Two Rocks in the north to Rockingham in the south, and east inland to The Lakes. Perth was originally founded by Captain James Stirling in 1829 as the administrative centre of the Swan River Colony, and gained city status in 1856 (currently vested in the smaller City of Perth). The city is named for Perth, Scotland, by influence of Sir George Murray, then British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. The city's population increased substantially as a result of the Western Australian gold rushes in the late 19th century, largely as a result of emigration from the eastern colonies of Australia. During Australia's involvement in World War II, Fremantle served as a base for submarines operating in the Pacific Theatre, and a US Navy Catalina flying boat fleet was based at Matilda Bay. An influx of immigrants after the war, predominantly from Britain, Greece, Italy and Yugoslavia, led to rapid population growth. This was followed by a surge in economic activity flowing from several mining booms in the late 20th and early 21st centuries that saw Perth become the regional headquarters for a number of large mining operations located around the state.

Festival of Dangerous Ideas 2013: Malcolm Knox - We are Asia's Quarry
 
01:03:46
Whether we like it or not, we are a mining nation. Mining has always been an important part of the Australian economy, but has been edged out of our mythology by romantic images of the farmer and the jolly swagman. There are many aspects of contemporary mining that make us uneasy. Mining forces us to depend on foreign clients and capital supplies, it depletes and damages the environment and does not fully reward traditional owners. It employs relatively few Australians and places in danger those who are in work. But few of us aren't touched by its benefits and the recent mining boom has given us the best of both worlds -- the cash without the dirty finger nails., so we need to understand it and stop pretending it should not happen. We are Asia's quarry, a lucky country, not a clever one. It's time to stop pretending any different and take responsibility for what we sell. Malcolm Knox is the award-winning author, journalist, and former Literary Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald, where he famously broke the Walkley Award-winning Norma Khouri story Award. He is the author of many fiction and non-fiction books, including the Ned Kelly Award-winning A Private Man and The Captains. http://sydneyoperahouse.com/ideas Subscribe and find more videos from Ideas at the House: http://www.youtube.com/ideasatthehouse Get a new talk every week on our podcast: Audio - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640445035 Video - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640444896 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/IdeasAtTheHouse Twitter - https://twitter.com/ideasatthehouse

Australia and India to push for free trade pact
 
03:16
Australia and India have pledged to push for a major free trade deal, as Indian PM Narendra Modi made a rare speech to lawmakers in Canberra. Australian PM Tony Abbott admitted that bilateral ties - worth A$15bn (£8bn; $13bn) in 2013 - were "underdeveloped", hoping for the new deal in 2015. Mr Modi said India "will be the answer to your search for new economic opportunities". This comes a day after Australia sealed a landmark trade deal with China. Trade between Australia and China was estimated to be more than A$150bn last year. 'No other example' After greeting the Indian prime minister on Tuesday, Mr Abbott said: "We want to go further and that's why the next priority for Australia is a comprehensive economic partnership agreement with India." "This is a moment in time. This is the time to get this done." In a brief reference he made in a press conference between the two leaders, Mr Modi said the two countries were seeking "early closure" on a nuclear energy agreement "that will give Australia a chance to participate in one of the most secure and safe nuclear energy programmes in the world". The Indian prime minister also said "India's development, demographic and demand provide a unique long-term opportunity for Australia and all in the framework of democracy. "There is no other example of this nature in the world," he added, in what some Australian media outlets say was a veiled reference to China, a historic rival of India. India - alongside China - is one of the world's fastest growing economies. In a separate development, Indian mining company Adani won support from the Indian government and the Australian state of Queensland on Monday to help build a $7bn coal mine, rail and port project. Adani signed a memorandum of understanding for a $1bn loan from a state-run Indian bank for the mine in Queensland, which it aims to build by the end of 2017. Australia has approved the coal project, despite concern over its potential environmental impact. Uranium imports Mr Modi is the first Indian leader to visit Australia in 28 years, and he was met by a standing ovation by Australian lawmakers. In a wide-ranging speech, he also stressed the importance of Australian-Indian ties "for advancing regional peace and stability and combating terrorism". On Monday, Mr Modi received a rapturous reception in Sydney, where he addressed a large Indian community at the city's Olympic park. Mr Modi arrived in Australia last week to participate in the G20 summit in Brisbane. After the summit, Mr Modi told Australian business leaders they could expect improved investment opportunities in India. A special train called Modi Express, carrying more than 200 passengers from Melbourne to Sydney, was flagged off on Sunday by an Australian minister. "It just shows the strength of India-Australia relationship even if India beats us in Cricket World Cup 2015. His visit is very significant," Victorian Multicultural Minister Matthew Guy said.

2014 QUT Grand Challenge Lecture - Building the Resilience of Earth’s Ecosystems - T Hughes
 
52:09
Presented by Professor Terry Hughes (James Cook University). All of us – even those who live in cities – depend on ecosystems for food, water, energy and other services that nature provides. Preserving Earth’s increasingly threatened ecosystems while still promoting human well-being is a truly Grand Challenge. Globally, more than 200 million people depend on the ecosystem services that coral reefs provide for their livelihoods and food security. In Australia, the Great Barrier Reef alone generates $6 billion per annum in income from tourism and fisheries. But the World Heritage Status of the Great Barrier Reef is under review by UNESCO, and there is a very real risk that this iconic reef system could soon be listed as “in danger”. In this lecture, Terry Hughes will explore how the Great Barrier Reef has changed over the past 200 years in response to the rising impacts of pollution, fishing and climate change, and how new scientific research and improved management is helping to ensure the long-term viability of the Reef. Professor Terry Hughes is an ARC Laureate Fellow at James Cook University (JCU) and the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. His research focuses on the linkages between the ecology of reefs and their importance for societies and economies. He has worked extensively in Australia, the Coral Triangle Region, and the Caribbean. An important aspect of his research is understanding the dynamics and resilience of coral reefs, and translating this knowledge into innovative and practical solutions for improved reef management. Terry has received numerous awards for his work, including the Centenary Medal for his services to Australian society and marine biology, the Darwin Medal from the International Society for Reef Studies, the inaugural JCU Distinguished Professorship, the Silver Jubilee Prize for Excellence from the Australian Marine Science Association and the Sherman Australian Museum Eureka Prize for Environmental Research.

A Writer at Work / The Legend of Annie Christmas / When the Mountain Fell
 
01:25:42
Amanda Randolph (September 2, 1896 -- August 24, 1967) was an American actress and singer. She was a native of Louisville, Kentucky, and was the older sister of actress Lillian Randolph. She was the first African-American performer to star in a regularly scheduled network television show, appearing in DuMont's The Laytons. This short-lived program was on the air two months in 1948. Her film career began in 1936 with Black Network. She went on to do several Oscar Micheaux films, among them: Swing, Lying Lips and The Notorious Elinor Lee. Broadway roles in The Male Animal and Harlem Cavalcade soon followed. Around the same time, Randolph broke into radio, helped by people she met at The Clam House, who got her a CBS audition. She began working on various radio shows: Young Dr. Malone, Romance of Helen Trent and Big Sister. Amanda went on to become a regular cast member on Abie's Irish Rose, Kitty Foyle, and Miss Hattie with Ethel Barrymore, where she had the role of Venus. Amanda also appeared on Rudy Vallée's radio show and on Grand Central Station. She continued working in films to the 1960s, and was one of the first black women to become a comedy favorite on television. She briefly starred in her own daytime musical TV program for DuMont, Amanda, during the 1948 - 1949 season, making her the first African-American woman with her own show on daytime television.[55][56] Randolph did not settle in California until 1949, when she earned a role in Sidney Poitier's No Way Out. Even though she was working in New York and her younger sister, Lillian, had been working in Hollywood for some time, newspapers often got the two sisters mixed up, doing a story on Amanda but with a photo of Lillian and vice-versa. She then became a regular on the top early black TV show of the decade, Amos 'n' Andy, as Sapphire's mother, Ramona Smith, from 1951 to 1953; she also played the same role for the show's radio version from 1951 to 1954.[57] Amanda was now working with her sister, Lillian, who played Madame Queen on the radio and television shows.[15] She was the star and titular character in Beulah from 1953 to 1954, assuming the role from Lillian. Randolph also did some work for radio in 1956, playing the role of the folk heroine Annie Christmas in The Legend of Annie Christmas. She also had a recurring role as Louise the maid on CBS's The Danny Thomas Show and appeared in the show's 1967 reunion. (The show was aired shortly after her death.) She guest starred on the NBC anthology series, The Barbara Stanwyck Show. In 1955, Amanda opened a restaurant in Los Angeles called "Mama's Place", where she did the cooking. Despite all her film and television work, Amanda found herself slightly short of the requirements for a much-needed Screen Actors Guild pension at age 70; both sisters struggled for roles in the late 1930s. A role was written for her to gain eligibility. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanda_Randolph

48:23
Find out more at http://ow.ly/jZeHo As the world population increases and people across the globe aspire to higher standards of living, where will the world's energy come from? Recent technological advances in both the renewable and non-renewable fuel industries offer the hope of a substantial increase in available energy supplies. At the same time, the world must address environmental degradation, climate change and the scarcity of some resources. This lecture discusses the forces that will shape the evolution of the global energy mix this century. Presenter Professor Peter McCabe is the Research Theme Leader for Geosystems and Resources at the Institute for Future Environments and a lecturer in the Science and Engineering Faculty at QUT. Peter is a recognised expert on global coal, oil and natural gas resources and has a strong track record of engaging with the fossil fuel industry both nationally and internationally. He has a deep understanding not only of the science and technology of resource exploration and extraction and environmental protection, but also of government energy policy and regulations.

Nigger
 
40:24
Nigger is a noun in the English language. The word originated as a neutral term referring to black people, as a variation of the Spanish/Portuguese noun negro, a descendant of the Latin adjective niger ("color black"). Often used disparagingly, by the mid 20th century, particularly in the United States, it suggested that its target is extremely unsophisticated. Its usage had become unambiguously pejorative, a common ethnic slur usually directed at blacks of Sub-Saharan African descent. This video is targeted to blind users.

TMI for the Dems - Lots of layoffs = economic recovery? - 1st amendment killed
 
01:59:17
Hr1 Why do Republicans keep attacking each other? They're just giving the Democrats so much ammunition for the general election. Stick to the issues people! Xander Gibb on with Joe to discuss issues from a different viewpoint. Donald Trump cancelled his Chicago rally today over safety concerns with protesters outside. Is this a matter of the 1st Amendment being overrun by protesters? Should rally protesters be allowed to shut down a venue? Xander wonders if it was just another PR stunt from The Donald. Mizzou professor Melissa Click says she was terminated to appease conservatives. Hmm. UC-Davis pro-choice students counter-protesting a pro-life rally needed "access to mind spa services" afterward. Really? Hr2 HOW many layoffs are happening? I thought we were in an economic recovery... NPR & Harvard University say it's "hard to think of a federal program that has proved such a comprehensive disaster, in such a short period of time" as Obamacare. Ouch! Harvard sexual-assault task force recommends eradication of male-only clubs. Hr3 First it was Obamacare, now it's the minimum wage... Oregon State Univ. has to cut even more jobs. Man on the street, Mark Dice asks people who our nation's capital was named after. Do you know? USARadio Sr. Correspondent, Jason Wert, Moveon.org and Bernie Sanders supporters were the ones who came out to riot outside Donald Trump's rally. They are mostly college students who don't even want to let conservatives speak on their campus. And the media blames it on Trump. Donald Trump isn't doing anything that wasn't done to get Barack Obama elected. There's a difference between protesting and breaking the law. Lawlessness is being allowed under the guise of political correctness. That should never happen.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
 
12:23
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

The Cruise of the Snark Audiobook by Jack London | Full Audiobook with subtitles
 
08:05:49
The Cruise of the Snark (1913) is a memoir of Jack and Charmian London's 1907-1909 voyage across the Pacific. His descriptions of "surf-riding", which he dubbed a "royal sport", helped introduce it to and popularize it with the mainland. London writes: Through the white crest of a breaker suddenly appears a dark figure, erect, a man-fish or a sea-god, on the very forward face of the crest where the top falls over and down, driving in toward shore, buried to his loins in smoking spray, caught up by the sea and flung landward, bodily, a quarter of a mile. It is a Kanaka on a surf-board. And I know that when I have finished these lines I shall be out in that riot of colour and pounding surf, trying to bit those breakers even as he, and failing as he never failed, but living life as the best of us may live it.
