Let's face it: Humans are pretty messy. Industrial processes like mining and manufacturing are important parts of keeping civilization going, but they all impact the environment. Sometimes that impact is particularly big and messy, leaving behind hazardous waste that can take years or even decades to clean up.

Australian Property Downturn 2018
 
04:51
Australian house prices have been in the news again, and not for the right reasons. Experts warn that due to factors such as unemployment, underemployment, lacklustre wage growth, weak house prices, and the looming threat of interest rate rises, mortgage stress is set to surge. Rates of mortgage default are highest in the mining states of Western Australian and Queensland. 15 of the top 20 worst performing suburbs are in these two states. Credit ratings agency Moody’s suggests that the situation will only get worse as more and more interest-only loans are converted to principal and interest loans over the next 12 months. The Australian dream of owning your own home is looking less and less likely for a growing number of Australians. Martin North, of Digital Finance Analytics, makes a comparison with the current state of the Australian housing market with that of Ireland in 2007 just as its property market started to crash. All current metrics indicate that Australia is in a massive property bubble — metrics such as high debt-to-income and price-to-rent ratios. Australia currently has very low mortgage interest rates, and up until recently, very loose lending policies, which ultimately encouraged speculative buying. Many newly constructed apartments are simply not selling. A lot of property developers are now in financial difficulty. Interest rates can’t get any lower, so only have one direction they can go — up. The number of interest-only loans in Australia is staggering. Over the next few years, a total of about $360 billion of interest-only loans will roll over to interest plus principal, which equates to higher repayments for borrowers. We’re setting ourselves up for one massive fall. Although, the Reserve Bank of Australia may not increase domestic rates any time soon, the big Australian banks all borrow offshore. The US, for example, has raised its rates eight times in the last few years. Australian banks will be forced to raise their mortgage rates regardless of the RBA’s movements — and that’s exactly what we have seen over the last month or two. Currently, there are also quite low rental yields. That is, properties are relatively expensive to buy compared to renting them. This is often a sign that the market is overvalued. If people cannot afford to buy the house they are currently renting, then something is askew. Sydney University economics professor Colm Harmon stated that this situation cannot persist long-term without something giving way. About 40% of first-home buyers are unable to get finance due to recent restrictions imposed by Australia’s regulators. If you go back two or three years, almost everybody could get a loan. Australians are now one of the most indebted people in the world at about 200% of household income. Last week, Sydney house prices fell for the 12th consecutive month. Is this the beginning of a slow deflation, or a gigantic burst? Many forecasters predict a reduction of 10% as a “base case”. What if the declining prices result in a sudden halt to the housing construction boom? Then of course, lots of people will lose their jobs increasing the number of housing loan defaults. This will lead to forced sales adding more pressure on an already struggling market. In this sort of situation, many people will be left with debts greater than the value of their property. Homeowners typically will do anything to keep a roof over their heads, but investors are more likely to sell when they see signs of a downturn in order to minimise their losses. Some companies are already preparing themselves for a property crash. AustralianSuper, Australia’s largest superannuation fund, is changing its rules so that members cannot suddenly withdraw investments from their property fund in the event of a downturn. Whatever happens, we certainly need to reconsider the Australian dream of owning our own home. We could help the matter by improving our tenancy laws.

Arsenic poisoning: 6,000 villagers in central Thailand blame an Australian-owned gold mine
 
01:20
Hundreds of blood samples collected from villagers in central Thailand’s Thap Khlo District show that up to 6,000 villagers have elevated amounts of manganese and arsenic in their bodies. While the Thai government remains uncertain about the source of the poisoning, villagers blame an Australian-owned gold mine in their district. Villagers in Thap Khlo first complained about the mine’s possible environmental and health hazards last June when they sent a letter to Thailand’s National Council for Peace and Order, asking the regime to address their concerns about the mine. In response, the Thai government sent city officials to conduct health tests on the villagers last November. Test results released in December indicate that many of the villagers have manganese and arsenic poisoning. Moreover, a separate research conducted by Thailand’s Rangsit University show that soil, water and vegetation as far as four kilometers away from the mine have unnaturally high levels of manganese, arsenic and cadmium. Arsenic and manganese are both found naturally in rocks. The metals are released from rocks during the mining and smelting process as ores are heated to release other minerals from it. Surface runoff can spread the metals, contaminating a larger stretch of land beyond the mine. The metals may flow into nearby waterways or are absorbed by plants, providing for ample ways in which humans can ultimately ingest the metals. Arsenic and manganese can have serious health consequences once ingested. Arsenic can cause skin hyperpigmentation, serious gastrointestinal problems as well as cancer in the skin, liver and lungs. Arsenic can also impair blood circulation in the body by causing small blood vessels to become more permeable and thereby decreasing blood pressure drastically. High levels of manganese can cause symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease such as body rigidness and slurred speech. The Thap Khlo gold mine is part of the Chatree Mining Complex, a collection of mines owned by a subsidiary of Sydney-based Kingsgate Consolidated Ltd. Chatree Mining considers its safety and environmental regulations up to international standards, so Kingsgate Consolidated remains defiant against accusations. Kingsgate Executive Chairman Ross Smyth-Kirk released a statement supporting current mining regulations, saying that the mine’s employees were tested for metal poisoning last June and that the employees showed no signs of poisoning. Since the results were released, the Thai government has suspended operations at Chatree Mining’s Thap Khlo gold mine for 30 days while more tests and inquiries are conducted. If Chatree Mining is unable to prove that they are not the source of the contamination, the suspension will be extended. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Two Paths for American Mining
 
02:25
Two paths have emerged in the current mining legislative landscape. The first path would open up opportunities for mining, allow the United States to increase domestic production, create more jobs and enhance our national and economic security. The second path leads to higher taxes and product costs, jeopardizing jobs. At the core of this negative path is a proposed $1.8 billion tax on the moving of dirt for the mining industry. This tax will exacerbate the domestic jobs problem and push even more industries overseas. If mining taxes were raised, American businesses would be forced to get more materials overseas that we could be mining domestically—this increases our dependence on other countries. Minerals are among the most important components in the technologies protecting our nation. Foreign reliance leaves us in a vulnerable position. Washington has a choice to make. You can help. You can tell your legislators that the right choice involves an increased use of domestic minerals to help U.S. economic growth and national security.

Drugs, Crime, and the Australian Bikie
 
10:15
Check out the Best of VICE here: http://bit.ly/VICE-Best-Of It's now tougher than ever to be a bikie in Australia. In 2013 Campbell Newman, premier of the state of Queensland, declared that 26 motorcycle clubs were to be classified criminal organisations. He then announced "the toughest laws in the nation," a set of strict anti-association laws aimed at snuffing out bikie gangs altogether. The new laws prohibited club members from meeting in groups larger than two, barred them from certain jobs, and forced anyone on a Harley to prove they weren't a part of a criminal gang. This has made life difficult for all riders, and just about impossible for club members. It also drove an upswing of arrests for both. So are the laws working? And more importantly, do they make sense? We hung out with the president of Queensland's largest outlaw club, the Rebels, to see for ourselves.

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
 
12:44
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers.

Miners Lose Jobs Over The Harlem Shake - [Original] HD
 
00:29
Australian Miners Lose Jobs Over The Harlem Shake in Working Hour Thirty seconds of fun has cost up to 15 miners their jobs in Western Australia. A group of workers from Barminco and Hahn Electrical Contracting were fired for their involvement in a re-enactment of the viral dance craze, the Harlem Shake. The news comes as US aviation safety authorities investigate an incident where an airline allowed university students and passengers to perform the popular dance in the aisles of a plane during a flight. One of the sacked miners claims no safety regulations were breached, and a second says no-one was endangered in the stunt at Agnew gold mine, the West Australian reports. The Barminco staff have not only been fired, but banned for life, according to a letter of dismissal. Apparently all the miners involved were wearing helmets, lamps, and glasses and had oxygen on hand. The workers believe their only breach of rules was removing their long-sleeve shirts. "It was 2.30 in the morning and we thought we just had to do something to get us going again," one unnamed worker said. "Sometimes you lose a bit of momentum at that time of the morning." It took a week for all of the miners to lose their jobs after the 30-second clip was uploaded to YouTube. Meanwhile in the US, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) is looking at an incident on board a Frontier Airlines flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego. The university students, members of their school's ultimate frisbee team, had permission from the flight crew to perform the Harlem Shake and recruit fellow passengers using the PA system. A video of the shenanigans - Harlem Shake Frontier Flight 157 - had more than three millions views on YouTube at 8am AEDT. The FAA has taken more of a dim view on the fun and games. A spokesman said: "If we find any evidence of a violation of Federal Aviation Regulations, then we would pursue it." The airline says it followed safety procedures and turned the seatbelt sign off. Student Matt Zelin told his school's newspaper is surprised the incident is under review. "When we got to the airport we were kind of ready and had brought costumes and stuff," he said. "Obviously I hope that this whole situation is solved with the FAA. "I don't see there being any reason why this should cause any trouble. "We asked the staff and they said it was safe." That will be a question for the authorities. But as one YouTube user said: "life is too short not to have a banana suit on a plane". Restart Up to 15 workers at the Agnew gold mine in the Goldfields have been sacked and banned for life from every Barminco project in the world after performing the Harlem Shake dance craze on site

Australia. History of Australia in a Nutshell.
 
10:38
The animated history of Australia in a nutshell. For centuries, rumors and legends are spreading among the traders, about the Terra Australis Incognita, unknown southern land. For Europeans, this is only a tale. However, in the middle of the sixteenth century, a series of world maps are created, so-called 'the maps from Dieppe,' documenting the latest Portuguese explorations, on which a mysterious land is found, called 'Le Grand Java.' A few centuries later, the map will be considered by some as the evidence of discovering Australia by Portuguese. Soon after, in sixteen-o-five a Dutch trader, Willem Janszoon, sets sails from the Dutch East Indies to search for a new land. According to his plan, he arrives at an unknown destination and names it 'Keer-Weer.' As it turns out, later on, it is Australia, modern-day Cape York. Since that moment, the sea route is frequented by the Dutch ships, which sometimes, sailing too far away are sighting the coast of Terra Australis. The Dutch, bring Terra Australis to the world maps. In sixteen-eighty-eight, William Dampier sets out on a voyage around the New Holland, returns and convinces the Admiralty to support another expedition. In August seventeen-sixty-eight, HMS Bark the Endeavor, under the command of Captain James Cook, sets sails from England. In the year seventeen-seventy arrives at the coast of New Holland and disembarks in several spots, including Botany Bay and Possession Island and gives the land a name - the New South Wales. Cook's expedition spreads the idea to colonize the new land, and with losing the thirteen colonies, the idea grows stronger. During that time, many people in Britain live in poverty and the penalty for theft is high. Choosing between hunger, and thievery, many Brits are choosing the theft and simultaneously overpopulates the local prisons. Officially to reduce the criminal population, and unofficially to make use of the human resources British Government sends out an expedition to create a penal colony and a bridgehead for further British colonization. In seventeen-eighty-eight under the patronage of Lord Sydney, an expedition arrives at Botany Bay under the command of Arthur Philip, carrying seven hundred and thirty convicts and two hundred and fifty free men plus the crew. Discovers a large bay, founds a settlement and names it after the patron of the expedition, Sydney. British push forward, and in eighteen-twenty-seven Edmund Lockyer founds Albany in modern-day Western Australia. Britain claims the entire continent. Along the increase of the free people, resistance grows, people do not want the penal status of the land. Finally, the British Parliament convinced, agrees to stop sending convicts to some of the colonies. Since eighteen-forty sending criminals will be gradually reduced, until the tenth of January eighteen-sixty-eight when the last shipment of convicts will reach the Western Australia. In eighteen-twenty-five the population equals about sixty thousand people, to reach four hundred-fifty thousand in eighteen-fifty-one, to touch, during a gold rush, over a million and fifty thousand people, just ten years later. Locally, Aborigines are oppressed. At the beginning of colonization, Aborigines not knowing the concept of property, do no know what treaties with the Europeans can bring. They are bringing disease and plagues decimating aborigines, and also the conquest of the natives pushed out from their homelands. Until the nineteen-sixty-seven, Aborigines, will not be considered as equal inhabitants and citizens of their native land. On the first of January nineteen-o-one, a dominion of the Commonwealth of Australia is proclaimed, and Sir Edmund Burton becomes the first prime minister of the federation. Along with the outbreak of the First World War, thousands of young people on a distant continent, are at war which they do not understand. Thousands of dead and wounded shock Australian public opinion, and make them realize the difference between the British and Australian interests. The Second World War breaks out. Like two decades earlier, Australia joins war along with Britain. However, the British are being defeated in the far east. Japan quickly takes new territories. Hong Kong falls. Singapore falls. Australia is under threat. The United Kingdom put on the defensive in Europe and cannot provide support. A turning point occurs. ANZAC asks the United States for protection. Along with its victories, the US takes the opportunity to pull Australia and New Zealand under its influence. The war in Europe ends and soon after also on the Pacific, the new world order is brought to life.

Workers Compensation Time Limits in Western Australia
 
02:08
In this video we discuss the time limits for making a workers compensation claim in Western Australia. Discussed are Section 178 of the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 and the exceptions to the general rules. Link to Form 2B Claim Form: http://www.workcover.wa.gov.au/conten... Foyle Legal Website: https://foylelegal.com/ Foyle Legal Workers Compensation Claim Page: https://foylelegal.com/personal-injuries/workers-compensation-claim/ Foyle Legal Address: 6/2 Carson Road, Malaga, Perth, WA 6090 Thank you for watching. In this video, we're going to talk about time limits in respect to workers compensation claims in Western Australia. The Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981, Section 178 places two responsibilities on workers as the things that they have to do after they've suffered an injury at work. The first is to inform their employer in writing as soon as practicable after the occurrence. And the second, and in any event, is to make a workers compensation claim within 12 months from the occurrence of the injury or in the case of death in 12 months of the time of death. There are exceptions which will cover later on. In the last slide, we saw that there are fairly strict rules in regards to making a claim but there are ways around this. If it can be shown that the employer is prejudiced in defending the proceedings or alternatively if it can be shown that failure to give notice was occasioned by mistake, absence from the state, or another reasonable cause. Then a worker may be able to still proceed with the claim. Similar rules apply in relation to the 12 months time limit for making a claim. For the purpose of showing that the employer has not been prejudiced in defending the proceedings. The period from the occurrence of the injury or from the time of death to the time of a claim is made is to be taken into account. The normal way of giving notice of a claim is through the form 2B claim form. We provided a link at the bottom of this video. Foyle Legal specializes in the area of personal injury law. If you've made a claim for personal injury. Foyle Legal offers a No Win No Fee legal service and your first appointment is obligation free.

Perth Australia Travel 2015
 
02:09
Perth Australia Travel 2015 Perth 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 2.02 million (as of 30 June 2014) living in Greater Perth.[1] Perth is part of the South West Land Division of Western Australia, with the majority of the metropolitan area of Perth 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. It gained city status (currently vested in the smaller City of Perth) in 1856, and was promoted to the status of a Lord Mayorality in 1929.[9] The city is named after 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.[10] 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. As part of Perth's role as the capital of Western Australia, the state's Parliament and Supreme Court are located within the city, as is Government House, the residence of the Governor of Western Australia. Perth became known worldwide as the "City of Light" when city residents lit their house lights and streetlights as American astronaut John Glenn passed overhead while orbiting the earth on Friendship 7 in 1962.[11][12] The city repeated the act as Glenn passed overhead on the Space Shuttle in 1998.[13][14] Perth came 8th in the Economist Intelligence Unit's August 2015 list of the world's most liveable cities,[15] and was classified by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2010 as a world city.[16]

Why the Deadly Asbestos Industry is Still Alive and Well
 
19:28
Despite irrefutable scientific evidence calling out the dangers of asbestos, 2 million tons of the carcinogen are exported every year to the developing world, where it's often handled with little to no regulation. For this episode of VICE Reports, correspondent Milène Larsson traveled to the world's largest asbestos mine in the eponymous town of Asbest, Russia, to meet workers whose livelihoods revolve entirely around the dangerous mineral. Surprisingly, the risks associated with asbestos mining didn't seem to worry the inhabitants; in fact, asbestos is the city's pride, celebrated with monuments, songs, and even its own museum. Larsson then visits Libby, Montana, another mining town almost on the other side of the globe, where the effects of asbestos exposure are undeniable: 400 townspeople have died from asbestos-related diseases, and many more are slowly choking to death. Why is the deadly industry of mining and selling asbestos still alive and well?

Stan Dempsey on the Experiment in Ecology
 
05:31
http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/libraries/bancroft-library/oral-history-center/ for complete oral history transcripts from Global Mining and Materials Research Project. Stanley Dempsey is a geologist, lawyer, executive, and entrepreneur whose interest in the environment and outdoor pastimes led him to spearhead collaborations between the mining industry and activists, which anticipated the environmental legislation of the 1970s. Dempsey was at the forefront of developing the mining industry’s legal and policy responses to environmental regulation during this early period, and became Director of Environmental Affairs for AMAX, Inc., the first position of its kind in the industry. He was responsible for acquiring land positions and for construction contracts for the Climax and Henderson mines in Colorado. He directed the AMAX part of a multinational joint venture in iron-ore mining in Western Australia. In the early 1980s, he served as Vice President for the worldwide operations of AMAX. After a brief stint at a law firm, Dempsey co-founded a merchant bank called the Denver Mining Finance Company. In later years, he founded one of the first and most successful mineral royalty firms, Royal Gold, Inc. Dempsey continues to serve as a consultant, and is a longtime supporter and leader in many mining associations, including the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America and the National Mining Hall of Fame.

China Warns Australia to Choose "Godfather" - China or U.S.
 
00:30
It is rare in diplomatic circles for governments to speak bluntly, particularly in the Orient, where manners are highly prized. Go to link now: http://tinyurl.com/q2rt2cz The exceptions to this rule are retired military officers, who are often able to voice sentiments too impolitic for other channels. One of the more startling pronouncements in this vein occurred last week when Song Xiaojun, a former senior officer of the People's Liberation Army, warned that Australia cannot juggle its relationships with the United States and China indefinitely and "Australia has to find a godfather sooner or later. Australia always has to depend on somebody else, whether it is to be the 'son' of the US or 'son' of China. (It) depends on who is more powerful, and based on the strategic environment." Noting the rising importance of China as an export market Song added that Australia depended on exporting iron ore to China "to feed itself," but "Frankly, it has not done well politically." What is also notable about Song's remarks is that they coincided with Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr's first official visit to China, where Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi urged Australia to dismiss its alliance with the United States, a decades-old bipartisan and central pillar of the nation's foreign policy, as ''the time for Cold War alliances has passed.'' Go to link now: http://alturl.com/xqjee The year 2012 is significant for the two nations, as it marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Australian-Chinese diplomatic relations. Australia is one of the few countries to actually run a trade surplus with China, which for the period January-November 2011, amounted to $15.15 billion, a 274.2 percent increase over 2010. Last year Australia-China bilateral trade rose to $80.73 billion, up by 44.2 percent. Australia's exports to China were worth $47.94 billion growing 59.7 percent over the previous year, accounting for 25 percent of Australia's total exports. Last year Australian imported $32.79 billion of goods from China. China is now Australia's largest trading partner, as well as its single biggest export market and import source, while Australia is now China's seventh-largest trading partner. While iron ore is Australia's single largest export item to China, worth $35 billion in 2010, energy exports are also significant as in 2010 Australia exported 17 million tons of coking coal to China, accounting for 37 percent of China's total coking coal imports, a trade that is expected to increase by around 20 percent by 2015 as new mining and infrastructure investments in Queensland and New South Wales come online. Such trade can only increase in the future, as both Australia and China are moving towards concluding a Free Trade Agreement. What has been rattling the Chinese leadership are recent remarks by the Obama administration that the Pentagon will shift its focus to Asia. Last month the first contingent of 2,500 U.S. Marines to be deployed in the country arrived in the northern city of Darwin. China criticized the deployment as proof of a "Cold War mentality," but worse may be to come, as Australia has indicated it may also allow the United States to use its territory to operate long-range spy drones and reportedly station aircraft carriers and nuclear-powered attack submarines in the western Australian city of Perth. A further trade card that China can play against Canberra is the strong growth of Chinese investment in Australia over the last several years. For the period 2007-2010, the Australian government approved over $50 billion in Chinese investment, including in businesses and real estate. So, stripped to its essence, the Chinese government has some significant economic cards to play against Australia deepening its defense ties with the U.S. What is most notable about China's new policy as embodied in Song's remarks is that it represents a new level of Chinese diplomatic "pressure," which up to now has been primarily limited to expressing their "concerns" to their Asian neighbors over the status of the South China Sea. So, for Australia, which will it be, Beijing or Washington? Probably the one that makes Canberra "an offer it can't refuse."

One Life - Many Lives #AjahnBrahm | Buddhist Society of Western Australia

The concept of having only one life may lead to the fear that we may not be able to accomplish all that we want to before our death. The concept of "this is a life out of many", will change the perception and the way we treat life. Life is precious and is to be cherished. Death is inevitable and is not to be feared. Ajahn Brahm offers us beautiful images of death, comparing it with the crescendo before the end of a great symphony or a beautiful sunset. And the sun always rises the next day…
