What's a cubic litre ?
QUOTE
It has been a difficult year for mine operator Energy Resources of Australia (ERA), marred by security breaches and the collapse of a leach tank in December that spilled about one million cubic litres of radioactive and acidic slurry at the site.

Cheers

A free plug for one of this sites advertisers.

I bought a Dream Catcher 2 kayak from Dream Kayaks recently and it's awesome value imo.

After now having used it on the water several times, I find it as good as they state. I have no complaints about the service, quality, stability, strength, design or the price! (or anything else)

They will even bargain with you for a better deal than advertised price, even though they are super cheap already.

US politicians have considered a multitude of harsh measures in their attempt to cut government spending, from slashing the military budget to reducing benefits.

A 14-year-old boy, however, has suggested a prosaic alternative: switching type fonts on all government correspondence in a move which he claims would save $US370 million a year ($A400m) in printing costs.

Suvir Mirchandani, from Pittsburgh, began his research after being struck by the number of printed sheets he was handed by his teachers at middle school. He decided to investigate the costs involved, and discovered that computer printer ink is considerably more expensive, by weight, than the finest French perfume.

Realising that some fonts used far more ink than others, he deduced that his school district could save $US21,000 a year by switching to a typeface called Garamond from Times New Roman.

In a wider study, he found that the US Government could save $US136 million on its $US467 million annual printing budget by doing the same thing.

An additional $US234 million could be saved annually if state governments made the same switch, he reported.

The US Government Printing Office has described his research as "remarkable" and has promised to examine whether to change its methods.

I know there is a ss regular who is a keen follower of ten pin bowling and gets quite miffed by how the very best of our local talent does not get the same rockstar treatment as say our cricketers (sorry cannot remember his handle). Anyway he at least may be interested in this piece about the relative decline of professional bowling in the US (where close to 20% of the adult population still report themselves as being active in the sport).

For me watching bowling on tv is about as engrossing as watching their oval track car racing, that is not very, but I recognise that is not the view of fans of the either sport. I also happen to believe that basketball, like touch footy and indoor cricket, is not much more than a type of exercise you do to stay fit and yet it has developed into a major form of entertainment around the world. Each to their own.

Such a shame that he and his other mates at the HSU (since he wasn't the brains of the organisation) don't get a longer sentence and some time in general population.
