This is excellent

"This picture is one of a series of around 2500 "special photographs" taken by New South Wales Police Department photographers between 1910 and 1930."

"These 'special photographs' were mostly taken in the cells at the Central Police Station, Sydney and are, as curator Peter Doyle explains, of 'men and women recently plucked from the street, often still animated by the dramas surrounding their apprehension'."

"Doyle suggests that, compared with the subjects of prison mug shots, 'the subjects of the Special Photographs seem to have been allowed - perhaps invited - to position and compose themselves for the camera as they liked. Their photographic identity thus seems constructed out of a potent alchemy of inborn disposition, personal history, learned habits and idiosyncrasies, chosen personal style (haircut, clothing, accessories) and physical characteristics.'"

@gretathunberg
This is why we propose that state Govts should be abolished in #Australia. In Australia state govts are making decisions to build more #airports!

Our state govts do little of value today, they assert their importance by currying favour with glossy #architecturalFirms and a corrupt #construction cartel.

State govts will approve anything to spur #GDP #growth. Whereas local... (1/2)

Tales of wombat 'heroes' have gone viral. Unfortunately, they're not true

TL;DR Wombats dig tunnels and only some of them are actually inhibited by wombats, so other animals visit that vacant spots

Future Australians may become 'climate refugees'

Renowned climatologist Michael Mann says large chunks of Australia may become so hot and dry that they are uninhabitable as climate change continues to raise global temperatures.

Explosive #Fire Activity in Australia

Fires are burning so fiercely that they are lofting #smoke to unusual heights.

#Meteorologist Michael Fromm and colleagues at NRL counted more than 20 firestorms in the last week of December 2019 and the first week of 2020. “By our measures, this is the most extreme #pyrocumulonimbus storm outbreak in #Australia,” Fromm said. And with #extreme #weather #conditions forecasted in the coming days, it's likely there are more to come.

23 Square Mile Blaze


Huge pyrocumulonimbus clouds creating fire-induced thunderstorms, which form when hot air rises from a ground based fire. The air cools and condenses as it ascends, causing the cloud formation. A downdraft within the base of the pyrocumulonimbus cloud picks up embers and carries them to form new fires.

Meanwhile, #Australia is still on fire, with no end in sight. Prime minister Scott #Morrison, who spent the majority of the crisis on vacation in #Hawaii, has returned - and still refuses to take action against the climate crisis.

This. This is why we must rebel.

Soviet Australia...?

Australia Proposes Face Scans for Watching Online Pornography

"The Australian government has proposed using a facial recognition system it is developing to verify that people who seek to watch pornography online are of legal age."

"Current law in Australia does not prohibit minors from viewing pornography. But the federal government is considering proposals that would require people to prove their age before watching the material."

"Under the proposal from the Department of Home Affairs, a computer user’s face would be matched to images from official identity documents. It does not say how the user would submit a facial image at the beginning of each online session."

If this was the middle east, protestor = Palestinians, HK gov't = israel. there would be 1000's dead Palestinians and hundreds more Palestinians wounded in 10 days. Now the HK protests is 10 weeks old, how many are dead? China has shown incredible restraint. If it was israel, they would be killing indiscriminately already and the west would say it was for national security.. Then China can use the same playbook israel and the usa use all the time, just kill indiscriminately and call it defending national security. If the west can do that, it's only fair the east can do that as well.

israel has a 100-to-1 kill ratio, just like what happened a fees years back where over 1000s Palestinians were killed for about 10 israeli's killed as reported by Amnesty International.

Why are people not complaining about Palestinians living in a supermax prison with israel as the jailors? why? why? whatever China and Russia is 'wrong', but when usa or israel does the same thing, it's 'good', wtf is with this hypocrisy double standard. its fuccen bullshit.

Western and middle east media coverage on Hong Kong protests "unfair" says Canadian scholar

Hardenbergia, named after Franziska Countess von Hardenberg, a 19th century Austrian botany patron, The purple is Hardenbergia violacea "Happy Wanderer" (perhaps the most commonly-grown form) and the white is Hardenbergia 'Alba'. There is also a pink form of this tough climber, H. "Rosea". Hardenbergia is a member of the pea flower subfamily of legumes.
A more shrubby form has been developed, Hardenbergia 'Purple Clusters', which like its forebears, bears flowers in Winter and Spring.
Although it doesn't have much of a human-discernable scent, bees love it (of course) - a good source of sustenance for them during the chilly months.
