S Izzy the Staffordshire terrier

The fate of a Staffordshire terrier named Izzy will be put into the hands of the High Court of Australia in Canberra today, when the dog's owner challenges a council order for its destruction.


The highest court in the land deciding on the fate of a dog.
Vitally important stuff to the nation.
how much do we taxpayers pay for these clowns??
they should have told the plaintiff to piss off.
Do we not have slightly more pressing matters to be decided???
if not, disband the bloody thing.

Terminally ill man set to be first to undergo the world’s first full head transplant

AN Italian surgeon is set to become the first in the world to transplant a human head on to a donor body. The pioneering operation by Dr Sergio Canavero is to be carried out on a 30-year-old computer scientist who is suffering from a fatal muscle wasting disease.

Valery Spiridonov has admitted that the prospect of going through with the operation is terrifying.

G'day Mick & Harry.

I know some really good people in casa. Why the whole is such a disaster I dont know. Bureaucratic interference and incompetence at higher levels? Who knows?

The atsb and asa seem to have the same problems. All I know is the industry and its regulation is a long way from what it should be.

Hi Mick

I used to be a commercial helicopter pilot doing amongst other jobs mustering.. Talk about useless...The double standards were shocking..The inefficiency was amazing..The execution of their duties much to be desired..

Cheers

Harry

Successive govt's have been utterly useless in dealing with aviation and the various authorities ie casa, atsb are no better.

Speaking to the engineers, pilots and flight attendants would seem to be a good place to start as they are the ones directly involved. Truss is as useful as his useless predecessor. Thank goodness for blokes like Nick Xenophon.


As a Private Pilot, I could not agree more.
CASA and its inhabitants seem hell bent on destroying all aviation in Australia except for the major airlines.
Heard a fantastic story recently about a well credentialled pilot who flies a a mid sized exec jet, of which there are only two registered in OZ.
Every two years Pilots need to go through a flight check with an authorised person - usually a flight instructor.
At the level he was on, it had to be done by a senior CASA check officer (an ATO).
Unfortunately, there was no ATO within CASA who had been endorsed on this type of exec jet.
So their solution was for for one of their senior ATO's to be endorsed by the experienced pilot in that type , then for the that newly endorsed ATO
to conduct a flight review of the experienced pilot.
And to top it off, during his endorsement, the ATO busted right through controlled airspace without clearance. But its ok, they are CASA, and the rules don't apply to them.
Only a govt bureacracy could not see the stupidity of this.
Talk to pilots outside CASA or the RAAF and you will find nothing but loathing and contempt for CASA.

Abbott government ministers meet to discuss Germanwings crash


Wouldn't it be reasonable to ask the pilots what they think ? After all. it's their asses on the line, and they know how planes , airlines , and the system works.

Oh, wait a minute , the " government " must be seen to be in control of all things, especially those things it knows absolutely nothing about. No doubt the spin doctors see it as a chance for the government to get cheap kudos.

In my opinion, if things were dangerous, the pilots would have been squawking loudly long before this.
