The beeb is carrying this article about a photo a tourist took in Darwin. Must be a slow news day. They reckon it looks like a map of Australia. Wonder how many Darwin stubbies were consumed to come up with that (yeah I can sort of see it but really a bit of a rorschach inkblot test isn't it).

I'm a glass half full sort of bloke so I am happy to see the top half of the continent is above water (but being a Qlder I already knew you southerners were below the waterline).

The other thing I noticed is that they are making a story out of a very old photo. And I know that cause the photos captured what must have been one of the nuclear tests at Maralinga (boom boom .... sorry).

What makes you say Prof Ehrlich is wrong?
I thought it was quite evident that there are too many human mouths. We're eating other animals out of competition, destroying habitats, and killing even more as pests.
Of course, it's an inconvenient truth and, given the political diversity around the Globe, no solution seems possible. So, yeah, maybe it's futile to even talk about it and upset some sensitive souls.

Paul Erlich is at it again.
Ever since the publication of this seminal work, Th Population Bomb in 1968, he has been pushing the same line.
Despite being continuously wrong in his predictions about the explosion of humanity, he is still pushing the line that we have too many people, and population growth is too high.
Why should we believe him this time?? His track record is abysmal.
I just understand why the press give the bloke oxygen.

He would have "shown remorse" and promised not to do it again, meaning next time he'd try to avoid the copper and aim for an illegal immigrant instead.

Yeah, our Legal System is down the drain. Maybe some aspects of Sharia Law aren't that bad after all? Like flogging.
"An eye for an eye" and all that. Call is Mosaic, to avoid any nasty connotations, and convert it to Judaeo-Christian Law.

From the

ABC News

QUOTE
A Melbourne man who drove over a police officer in a stolen car while under the influence of drugs has avoided jail.

Fawad Raoofi, 28, of Mentone, pleaded guilty in the Dandenong Magistrates Court to running over a police officer's chest as he attempted to flee a fast food restaurant car park at Heatherton, in Melbourne's south-eastern suburbs.

Raoofi was asleep in a car when police and an ambulance were called to the car park on August 27, 2015.

The court heard when police woke him, Raoofi quickly reversed his car, hitting the ambulance and police car, before knocking an officer to the ground and driving over him.

Raoofi then rammed the ambulance and police car multiple times so he could escape.

He told the court he was heavily drugged at the time and could not remember driving over the police officer or hitting the vehicles.

He received a two-year community corrections order and was banned from driving for two days.

The magistrate noted he was his mother's full time carer and needed his licence.


Geez, driving under the influence of drugs, ramming police cars and ambulance, and knocking mr Plod over.
You might think that would get a jail term. And banned from driving for two days?? May as well get slapped with a damp lettuce.
If its true that he is mothers sole carer, he shows enormous care for her by taking drugs.
Magistrate needs a good kick up the arse.

define "contagion"

"an indiscriminate run by short-term creditors of financial institutions that can render otherwise solvent institutions insolvent because of the fire sale of assets that are necessary to fund withdrawals and the resulting decline in asset prices triggered by such sales." Such contagion is "the most virulent and systemic risk still facing the financial system today."

Hal Scott, a professor at Harvard Law School and the author of the recent book Connectedness and Contagion.



--------------------
"Every long-term security is nothing more than a claim on some expected future stream of cash that will be delivered into the hands of investors over time. For a given stream of expected future cash payments, the higher the price investors pay today for that stream of cash, the lower the long-term return they will achieve on their investment over time."
- Dr John Hussman
