FIFA World Cup 2018: Can You Hit a Home Run at the Soccer Field "IndyWatch Feed National"

2895629

A couple of days ago, the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia was opened by a match between Russia and Saudi Arabia national teams that many anticipated. At the grand opening of this event, Russias president Vladimir Putin announced that:

I congratulate the whole big, strong, multi-national football family from all over the world and welcome to the beginning of the planets main football tournament.

Even though soccer, or football as they call it in Europe, lies far beyond the boundaries of day-to-day politics, its hardly a secret to all those who have been following political events closely that it has been dominating the world of sports for quite some time. Its no wonder than that the world cup that has just opened attracts so much attention, as Russia and the Western world are engaged in the most intense and bitter geopolitical struggle since the collapse of the Soviet Union. However, what is even more intriguing, Russia appears to be winning.

Long before the grand opening of the 2018 World Cup, the deputies of the European Parliament announced their intention to declare a diplomatic boycott of this massive event. British authorities were first to officially announce the boycott of the FIFA World Cup, with a number of other countries joining them, including Iceland and Australia.

However, on the day Vladimir Putin made his greeting speech, most of the Western media sources had to acknowledge that the whole idea of a boycott was nothing but a big failure.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is the largest event that Russia hosts since the end of Soviet days, back when the United States and other countries chose to boycott of the Russia Olympics in 1980 because of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Reuters notes.

Its rather symbolic that the new anti-Russian hysteria was launched after the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics that was the largest sports-related PR victory for Vladimir Putin until those very days. The Atlantic Council...

Pennies from heaven? "IndyWatch Feed National"

hospital sign

With the opening of the new childrens hospital there has been interest in the origins of the first one, Princess Margaret. One popular retelling of the tale is:

In 1897, a young girl entered Charles Moores department store. She was drawn to an unusual moneybox into which she put three pennies. When Mr Moore asked her what she would like in return for her money, she asked to give it to the childrens hospital. Moore said there was no such hospital and the girl replied, Then why not have one? Moore responded, We certainly will, and we will start it with your pennies.

When Charles Moore told this story in 1909 at the opening of the hospital there wouldnt have been a dry eye in the room. And since Moore himself related the tale, it must be true. Mustnt it? Well, no, so let Dodgy Perth debunk it. But first, why is the moneybox always described as unusual?

The following section contains racially charged language and an image some may find offensive.

Moore said the moneybox was a negro one, where a coin placed into the hand would be thrown into the box. These were sometimes called jolly negro moneyboxes or, worse, greedy n****r boxes and were popular around the turn of the 20th century. Casual racism like this was the norm in the Perth of a century ago, so we shouldnt read too much into Moores story, or the fact that this box apparently stood on the hospitals front counter for years. However, to...

From Bauple to Burpengary The Game & The Big Year "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Barking Owl - Sheepstation Creek

BirdLife Australia Sunshine Coast, our local birding group, has for some time been running a game on its Facebook page organised by its leader, Ken Cross. One objective is to encourage people to photograph as many species as possible in a calendar year in the Sunshine Coast region. The area extends north to Inskip Point and Bauple; south to Bribie Island; and west to Kilcoy, the Conondale Range, the Amamoor area and Muna Creek-Miva. An outlier to the south, Sheepstation Creek Conservation Reserve near Burpengary, is also included.




I thought it would be fun to join in for the 2018 game, and it's proved quite a challenge. A bit like a big jigsaw puzzle, with all the bits slowly falling into place. A few weeks ago, what I dubbed The Game morphed into a Big Year for me, so I'm keen to see how many species in the region I can photograph this year. As of today (16/4/2018) I'm up to 279, and while it might be nice to hit 300, another 21 is a tall order, especially since I'm away for much of the second half of the year. I've seen but not managed to photograph another 4 species (King Quail, Stubble Quail, Eastern Ground Parrot, White-throated Nightjar). I've seen a total of 344 species in the Sunshine Coast region since time immemorial.

Market Talk- June 15, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed National"

 

Markets always seem to be waiting for something and even today it appears they were concerned about the BOJ and then later the US/China Trade Talks. The result for cash was that the market felt that the BOJ offered a helping hand after it today downplayed its previous view on inflation. The subsequent bounce in the Nikkei (+0.5%) was one of the few markets that managed a positive return today. The other core market to benefit off of today events was the Australian ASX (+1.25%), but that too saw currency declines -0.4%. Shanghai and the Hang Seng
both lost around -0.6% as concerns escalate over the Trade Talks. SENSEX did well just to close unchanged as most of the afternoon session was spent in negative territory. However, the markets was probably helped by the continued decline in the INR, this evening closing with a 68 handle.

Europe was generally weaker across the board with the UKs FTSE (1.7%) being hit hardest. The UK continues to battle with BREXIT plans and so we are seeing the currency also under pressure and also market concerns surrounding US trade. Core Europe were also lower with DAX and CAC off around -0.6% the pair, whilst peripherals (IBEX, FTSE MIB) closed a little over 1% lower. The markets are still concerned about the ECBs possible tapering from QE from September. We did hear Draghi state that the door could remain open but these moves appear a little more concerning.

US core were waiting for more information about US/China trade tariffs and so were trading lower in the uncertainty. By the close all core had recovered much of the intraday declines closing just 80 points off on the DOW. Earlier in the session the DOW was down almost 300 points but had recovered by the close. Eventually, we heard the US put a Trade number of $50bn of charges on trade and later we hear China stated a $32bn number. The result of todays trading really blends into the previous rally and is having a negligible impact. It may be too early to make such a claim but the market consensus is that somehow these guys will work things out. US stocks still looking in good shape with gains of around 5% over the past month for NASDAQ and the broader S+P.

APPLYING SECURITY FORCES AGAINST CIVILIANS NOT A PANACEA - FIND ROOT CAUSE "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

by DON POLYE
Whilst condemning the destruction to state properties, the solution to this incident in Mendi or similar other situations are not emotions or blaming each other!
The solution is to analyse and dig out the root cause of such unprecedented insanity in Mendi! The need to root out the main cause of such a chaotic situation must be the National cry!!!
Applying the security forces against the civilians is not a panacea. Deploying security to appease volatility is good but only a temporary and band aid solution!
The young and the old alike need to assess this situation more intelligently and rationally than emotionally.
For example, this shameful and abhorrent thing has happened in SHP where a lot of money has been going into . The SHP, including Hela Province (same) host the international standard petroleum projects...even more similar projects in the same provinces are in the pipeline.
This province has produced MPs who are now playing the stewardship role of managing PNG's affairs. SHP leaders are captaining MV PNG. This province has come under international sympathy for disaster relief supplies when earthquake struck . ..
...And the same province has horrified the whole nation and the international community when supporters of a candidate burnt down a plane, South West Air hangar, the court house, governor Powi's house and liberating the prisoners.
Commonsense tells us that there is no smoke without fire. It also tells one that in order to reap consequences of such disgrace, there must have been done certain things so detestable and ugly ... There must lie an ugly truth most don't know... that would have created a situation that facilitated a potentiality for such destruction.
The SHP people, their elected MPs, the unelected candidates, the PNG electoral Commissioner, the Returning Officer and the Security forces top hierarchy only WILL NEED to unwind this fiasco the way they patterned it. If these parties are genuine and sincere enough to fix SHP then they will. Otherwise, the spill over effects will reach far and wide.
Covering up systemic and systematic errors and defects by sending security forces will never solve such situation!!!!
Another example is the error is the incompetency and inconsistency of PNG Electoral Commissioner Patilus Gamato's decision and...

Bougainville can be a donor, says Masono "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

Bougainville can be a donor to other smaller Pacific countries if it becomes a independent state and operating some major projects in the years ahead.
This was the message given to the people of NOVAH NO.2 yesterday at the gathering to retrieve the remains of a former BRA Soldier killed by PNG DF soldiers in 1995 and buried at Novah.
MR. MASONO said that Bougainville was small but had the resources to become one of the richest states in the Pacific.
The Vice President also commended on the 13th anniversary of the ABG as Bougainville has move a lot of things in the last 13 years.
He said as a child born on June 15th 2005, this year she has become a teenager ready to become an adult and become one of the major players in this part of the region.
MR. MASONO called on the people to be patriotic citizen of Bougainville and contribute meaningfully to the development of Bougainville. New Dawn FM / PNG Today

Dark Precedents: Matteo Salvini, the MV Tampa and Refugees "IndyWatch Feed National"

In August 2001, Australias dour Prime Minister John Howard demonstrated to the world what his countrys elite soldiers could do. Desperate, close to starvation and having been rescued at sea from the Palapa I in the Indian Ocean, refugees and asylum seekers on the Norwegian vessel, the MV Tampa, were greeted by the crack troops of the Special Air Services.

A bitter, politicised standoff ensued.  The Norwegian vessel had initially made its way to the Indonesian port of Merak, but then turned towards the Australian territory of Christmas Island.  Howard, being the political animal he was, had to concoct a crisis to distract.  The politics of fear had a better convertibility rate than the politics of hope.

Australian authorities rebuked and threatened the container ships captain, claiming that if Rinnan refused to change course from entering Australias territorial sea, he would be liable to prosecution for people smuggling.  The vessel was refused docking at Christmas Island.  As was remarked a few years later by Mary Crock in the Pacific Rim Law and Policy Journal, The stand taken by Australia in August 2001 set a precedent that, if followed by other refugee receiving countries, could only worsen the already deplorable problems facing asylum seekers in the world today.

And so it has transpired. Italys response to the migrant rescue ship, MV Aquarius, eerily evoked the Tampa and its captains plight.  The charity ship, carrying some 629 African refugees, found all Italian ports closed to it under the express orders of Matteo Salvini, who has debuted in stormy fashion as Italys new deputy prime minister and minister for the interior.

Salvini had, at first instance, pressed Malta to accept the human cargo, but only got an offer of assistance with air evacuations.  The good God, he bitterly surmised, put Malta closer to Africa than Sicily.  The result was initial diplomatic inertia, followed by growing humanitarian crisis, and a Spanish offer to accept the vessel.

The situation clearly, as it did in the case of the Tampa, was calculated for maximum political bruising.  One of Salvinis many political hats is federal secretary of the populist Lega party, which capitalised, along with the Five Star Movement, on the shambles of Prime Minister Giuseppe Contes failure to form a government in May.  The nature of that calculation was made clearer by the uneventful rescue of 937 refugees off the Libyan coast who were taken to Catania in Sicily by the Italian warship, the Diciotti on Tuesday. Little fuss arose from that engagement.

1806 - Some convicts decided on a change of scenery so they lifted the brig 'Venus' from Port Dalrymple (in Tassie) and sailed off into the sunset and over the ditch to NZ.

1801 - Lieut William Paterson founded a settlement on the Hunter River. Alas! He forgot the first rule in real estate - location, location, location, and thus it was kicked to the kerb (abandoned to you fancy-pants readers) in 1802.

1806 - Sydney's very first girl's school was opened by Mrs Williams while many parents breathed a sigh of relief and stopped eyeing off the latest line of chastity belts.
An early St Trinian's....?

1807 - The first Russian ship in Australian waters, the trading sloop Neva, 370 tons, popped into Sydney to share a bottle of voddy with the colonials. While anchored in Neutral Bay, Lieutenant Leonid Hagemeister collected Aboriginal weapons, which were sent to St. Petersburg

Primate-rich countries are becoming less hospitable places for monkeys, apes and lemurs "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

Our primate cousins have managed to colonize a broad swath of the planet, taking up residence in 90 countries. Still, the majority of monkey, ape, lemur, tarsier and lorisid species live in Brazil, Indonesia, Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and a new study finds that 62 percent of those species face the specter of extinction due to hunting and the splintering and outright loss of their habitats. It came as little surprise to University of Illinois primatologist Paul Garber that these four countries, forested bulwarks of biodiversity that they are, have been fertile grounds for the rise of unique species. The sheer proportion of the worlds primates they contain, however, was telling, Garber said. The realization that these four countries harbor 65 percent of the worlds primate species made writing our current paper a priority, he said in an email to Mongabay. He and his colleagues report their findings today in the journal PeerJ. The four countries in the study are home to 65 percent of the worlds primate species, including this red leaf monkey (Presbytis rubicunda), found in Indonesian and Malaysian Borneo. Image by Rhett A. Butler/Mongabay. In 2017, Garber and 30 other primate researchers from around the world concluded that 60 percent of all primate species could be wiped out soon by human activity. It was during the research and writing of that manuscript that I first realized how critically important Brazil, Indonesia, Madagascar and DRC were to avoiding a mass primate extinction crisis, he

Slower Tropical Cyclones Bring More Mayhem "IndyWatch Feed National"

Tropical cyclones are moving more slowly. As temperatures rise, the pace at which a hurricane storms across a landscape has slowed perceptibly in the last 70 years. But the slowdown means each hurricane has more time to do more damage and deliver more flooding.

Tropical cyclones over land have slowed down 20% in the Atlantic, 30% in the northwestern Pacific and 19% in the Australian region, said James Kossin, of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations national centres for environmental information.

These trends are almost certainly increasing local rainfall totals and freshwater flooding, which is associated with a very high mortality risk.

He reports in the journal Nature that thanks to atmospheric warming as a consequence of the profligate combustion of fossil fuels in the last century, the summer tropical circulation has slowed and, along with it, hurricane and typhoon speeds. Overall, since 1940, cyclone movements have slowed by 10%; over some land areas, they have slowed much more.

But as the temperature goes up, the capacity of the atmosphere to hold moisture increases by at least 7% with each degree Centigrade. That means a tropical cyclone a whirling system of terrifying winds bearing huge quantities of water has both more water, and more time to drop it over land.

Harveys warning

And Dr Kossin cites the example of Hurricane Harvey which in 2017 dumped more than 1.25 metres of water on Houston, Texas and the surrounding countryside in just five days. Devastating floods displaced 30,000 people, and 89 died. Economic losses were assessed at more than $126bn.

This shift in what researchers call the translation speed is new and is only the latest study in a procession of alarming findings about the response of the winds in a warming world.

Researchers have already established that hurricanes are gaining in ferocity that is, becoming more intense  at a faster rate than they did decades ago. They have warned that windstorms capacity to damage the worlds economy is on the increase directly because of global warming and consequent climate change, and they have identified a trend in hurricane geography: the storms are moving further north, in the northern hemisphere.......

Discovery: New type of photosynthesis "IndyWatch Feed National"

The discovery changes our understanding of the basic mechanism of photosynthesis and should rewrite the textbooks. It will also tailor the way we hunt for alien life and provide insights into how we could engineer more efficient crops that take advantage of longer wavelengths of light. The discovery, published today in Science, was led by Imperial College London, supported by the BBSRC, and involved groups from the ANU in Canberra, the CNRS in Paris and Saclay and the CNR in Milan. The vast majority of life on Earth uses visible red light in the process of photosynthesis, but the new type uses near-infrared light instead. It was detected in a wide range of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) when they grow in near-infrared light, found in shaded conditions like bacterial mats in Yellowstone and in beach rock in Australia. As scientists have now discovered, it also occurs in a cupboard fitted with infrared LEDs in Imperial College London.

China-PNG friendship never been better, Chinese executive boasts "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

China in PNG
China Railway International Group in discussions with PNG officials as its starts a public relations offensive in the country

KEITH JACKSON

PORT MORESBY A Chinese executive of a major construction company says the relationship between Chinese enterprises and the local people has never been stronger.

And Wu Dongzheng, general manager of China Railway International Group in the South Pacific, told Xinhua Chinese news agency that the company's impact in the picturesque, palm-tree laden paradise goes far beyond the bricks and mortar.

With more than 2,500 local staff, the group has made it a priority to improve living standards of the employees and their families.

"I've seen too much poverty, too many jobless young men and too many families without medical care," Wu said.

That's why the company is focused on providing staff with technical training and professional qualifications, as well as offering financial incentives.

"Many families have changed their way of life because of this, and sent their children to primary schools and even universities," Wu explained.

Papua New Guinean employee Daniel Nere said the most important part of his job over the last decade has been to ensure local participation in projects

"We make sure the local people get contracts, subcontracts and are employed as we work along the corridors of the constructions path," he said.

"It has been my job to figure out the interrelationship between the company and the government here, and the Chinese understand us, they have much respect for PNG people like me."

The company says PNG is riding an economic wave of success as it prepares to host the 2018 APEC leaders' meeting.

At the end of 2017, Wu signed an agreement with Eastern and Western Highlands provincial governments to develop two industrial agriculture parks.

"I think developing agriculture is the most important thing for this country," Wu said. "But there is no road network to deliver agricultural products....

The importance of stories & the progress of our species "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

Phil 2015PHIL FITZPATRICK

TUMBY BAY - Bear with me, this is a bit esoteric and complicated.

The Israeli historian, Yuval Noah Harari, in his 2011* book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, wrote that all animals only experience major behavioural shifts when their genetics change. That is, when they experience an evolutionary change.

There is an exception however. Humans.

Humans evolved into our modern form about 300,000 years ago but for a long time we were just one of many species of animal subject to the whims of nature.

Drought, flood, fire, famine and occasionally abundance ensured that our numbers were always in balance with nature.

Then, about 70,000 years ago, there was a dramatic change in our numbers and we began to multiply exponentially.

It wasnt genetic change or climate change that caused this. It came with our ability to tell stories.

Humans are the only organism where behaviour can radically change because of the fictions they create. Fictions so great and powerful that they bind people into larger and larger groups that can accomplish greater and greater things.

Yuval Noah Harari described these as imagined realities, social constructs and myths. Humans have the special ability to unite millions of strangers around common myths. Ideas such as freedom, human rights, gods, laws, and capitalism exist in our imagination, yet they can bind us together and motivate us to cooperate on complex tasks.

They are imagined realities because they arise in peoples minds and have no scientific basis.

The French Revolution is a good example of a myth that changed human behaviour almost overnight.

In 1789 the French people rejected the myth of the divine right of kings to rule and adopted the myth of the sovereignty of the people.

The human ability to create a social construct, imagined reality and a myth and believe in them led directly to our ability to cooperate in our thousands and then in our millions.

These constructs gave us cooperation and cooperation made us the mightiest species on earth.

For any human society to survive and progress, imagined realities, myths and social constructs need to be carefully nurtured.

This is done through stories, through literature, the telling of whic...

There is Hope for Every Child Ever Born "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

Wardley Barry at work
Ward Barry - master poet

WARDLEY BARRY

There is hope for every child ever born
under city lights or kerosene lamps.
God is fair, our paths with dreams he adorns.

The homeless, recruited young to be tramps,
children scavenging among rubbish bins,
sheltering under drains or shanty camps;

the child spotting its mums eyes and dads chins,
cradled in white gossamer blankets,
garbed and magnified in lustrous satins.

Each child, at birth, was welcomed with trumpets
sounded by angels of the sacred choir,
whether they were born of saints or strumpets,

love bestowed upon us savage desire
and a long train of unspeakable dreams;
that give us wings to navigate the fire.

Our Father records every labour screams,
there is hope for every child ever born.
So smile when everything is gone, it seems.
God is fair, our paths with dreams he adorned.

Anti-vaccination billboard sparks outrage amongst Australian doctors "IndyWatch Feed National"

A new anti-vaccination billboard in Perth has sparked outrage amongst Australian doctors and caused a dispute to flare on social media. The ad poses the controversial question "Do you know what's in a vaccine?" The billboard was met with fierce criticism from Australian doctors and the authorities, which vowed to pull it down, as social media users argued about whether this could violate freedom of speech. Placed on a street corner, the billboard provided a link to an American anti-vaccination group called 'Learn The Risk.' It defines its mission as one of raising people's awareness of "the dangers of pharmaceutical products, including vaccines." However, the message wasn't received so well by the Australian Medical Association. As soon as the billboard was spotted, the Association insisted on having it pulled down by the local authorities. Their outrage was reinforced by Health Minister Roger Cook, who in turn branded the billboard "nasty and devious" and warned that its "misleading" nature could seriously endanger people's lives. Cook vowed to pull all the necessary strings to have it removed as soon as possible and said he was considering toughening laws to fight against this sort of "misinformation."

Even though Frances first encounter with its Australian rival wont be held at the World Cup till tomorrow, Frenchman Antoine Griezmann scored two goals yesterday. But not in any Russian stadium about 750 meters away from the barbed wire between Israel and Gaza.

The real blonde-haired Griezmann was represented by his number 7 blue shirt, worn by the 25-year-old Rami Jendia, who played for a Gaza sport club in a simulation match of the World Cup, held at Malaka, the base camp for the Great March of Return protests in Gaza. In the simulation, 14 amputee players played who had lost a leg from Israeli fire either from the weekly marches that began March 31, or from three wars on Gaza over the past decade.

The simulation-team players wore T-shirts from several countries participating in the World Championships. They were not able to buy only French and Australian jerseys because they are not available in sport equipment stores in the blockaded Strip.

The short game lasted only one-sixth the length of a real match, due to the stress on the players who were forced to jump on one foot all the match time. It kicked off after 13 hours of continuous fasting of the last day of the Holy Ramadan month.

Hamza Sersawi, 23, who symbolized the Manchester Citys superstar Leroy Sane, preferred to play as a goalkeeper, despite suffering paralysis on his left side of body and unable to repel his opponents balls.

Cat urgently needing a home! "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

My neighbours basically forced one of their cats onto me saying she didnt get along with their dogs. Poor girl had been neglected for a while and although I would take her, I already have 4 cats, and don't have the space or money for a fifth. Angel paws is ignoring my requests for help and my money is running out so I am wondering if I will have to take her to city council :(

She is an older girl named Coco. She is very slow to trust, due to her past neglect but when she feels comfortable, she becomes so affectionate. She will play a little bit with some toys and she acts like a kitten again when she is really into it.

She is desexed but that is all I know about her. Age, vaccination history, worming history, and whether or not she is microchipped are all unknown.

She would be perfect for someone who wants a companion to cuddle with. She likes sleeping during the day in a warm corner and will watch outside the window at night.

If you or anyone you know of wants an older, chill cat, please contact me ASAP!

O'NEILL MUST NOT USE STATE RESOURCES TO FIGHT HIS PERSONAL BATTLES. "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

By Souths Naiko

As a concerned citizen of Papua New Guinea, I am appealing to men and women of our armed forces to please not go into Southern Highlands and attack your own people.

This is a problem best solved by Peter O'Neill and his fellow politicians. Politicians must learn to solve the problems they create through non-violent means and stop resorting to heavy-handed tactics!! It's a shame for Peter O'Neill to display such a total lack of leadership by creating one problem after another and then expecting others to clean up after him.

Have we learned nothing at all from the Bougainville Civil War??

Just as he has always done, Peter O'Neill is simply abusing his position by using state resources to fight his personal battles. This is not a national emergency but a provincial law and order issue caused by politicians themselves!!

We appeal to the police and army not to allow yourselves to be used by one man in his corrupt quest for absolute power.

Peter O'Neill already abused the legal system of this country and he is now moving to use the police and army to ensure absolute control over this country, starting with his own province of Southern Highlands. Police and army must say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and tell this madman to fight his own battles.

PNGDF swore an oath to protect the people of PNG from external attacks while police swore their oath to protect lives and property or provide internal security. Both forces are not mandated to be private security forces of one man!!

PETER O'NEILL IS THE CAUSE AND SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEMS IN SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS PROVINCE.

Why should hundreds and thousands of innocent civilian lives including those of our armed forces be placed at risk and sacrificed to serve the whims of one stubborn man? It is better to remove one man and restore normalcy to this country than to wage war against our own people and suffer unnecessary casualties in the hundreds and thousands!!

Peter O'Neill has been rejected by his own people, therefore, he no longer has the trust and the mandate of the country to continue as Prime Minister. MPs in government must come to their senses now and dump this man!!

REMOVE PETER O'NEILL AS PRIME MINISTER AND SAVE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS AND PAPUA NEW GUINEA!!

The ABG President Chief DR. JOHN MOMIS when addressing todays ABG Day celebration at the ABG House, KUBU said that today marks the anniversary of the day when Bougainvilles political aspirations were first recognized with the formal establishment of the Autonomous Bougainville Government.
This is a day that should be celebrated by all Bougainvilleans.

Declaration of state of emergency in Southern Highlands "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

Prime Minister Peter ONeill has announced that the National Executive Council has approved the declaration of a state of emergency for the Southern Highlands Province, and a call-out of the Defence Force in the province.
The National Executive Council has agreed to a course of action that will restore order
in the Southern Highlands, ensure all Leaders with potential involvement in unlawful behavior are held to account, and prevent further unlawful activities.
The actions of reckless individuals damaging property in Mendi has disgusted the nation, the Prime Minister said.
The state of emergency in Southern Highlands Province will be in place for a period of nine months, and Mr Thomas Eluh is being appointed as the controller of the SOE.
Put simply, I have had enough of this nonsense that has been manipulated by people who would call themselves leaders.
Police will investigate every agitator, and every person who was involved in the unrest we saw yesterday.
No person is above the law and all involved will face the full force of the law and answer for any crime they have committed.
The Southern Highlands Province has so much going for it, so many natural resources and agricultural potential.
We will not let this potential be undermined by people who have failed in politics and want to cause disruption.
The Southern Highlands Provincial Government has been suspended, and I will oversee the operations of the Southern Highlands Provincial Government on behalf of the National Executive Council.
It is important that we place the actions we saw yesterday into context.
The ridiculous behavior by an unruly group is all about local level politics and attempts by failed politicians to vent their anger over their inability to be duly elected.
If there is any group who thinks they can continue cause trouble, they will find out very quickly that their actions will not be tolerated.
The Decision by the National Executive Council includes:
- Suspension of the Southern Highlands Provincial Government with
immediate effect for the duration of the state of smergency.
- Thomas Eluh to be appointed as the controller of the state of emergency,
with powers, duties and functions as prescribed by the Constitution and
Emergency Acts and Regulations.
- Deployment of police personnel, mobile squad and criminal investigators
(CID) to the Southern Highlands Province with immediate effect.
- Directing the Commissioner of Police, and the Commander of the PNG Defence
Force, in consultation with the controller, to immediately develop an operational
order for the deployment of troops (police and military) to Southern Highlands
Province for the SOE.

Palaszczuk Government one step closer to protecting human rights in Queensland law "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Queensland Governments budget, which was handed down this week, features $2.3 million of funding over four years for the states Anti-Discrimination Commission to help it administer the Human Rights Act that the Government will soon be introducing.

Lee Carnie, a Lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre, said it was great to see the Queensland Government moving to protect peoples civil and political rights in the law.

"A Human Rights Act will better protect Queenslanders human rights in law. It will require the government to think about peoples rights when making laws and policies and delivering services like housing, aged care and disability services. It will give people a way to hold the government to account if it crosses the line and breaches rights. It will make Queensland a better and fairer state," Lee Carnie said.

The Palaszczuk Government committed in 2016 to introduce a Human Rights Act and this morning Deputy Premier Jackie Trad confirmed the legislation will be unveiled in the coming months.

It is understood the legislation will be modelled on Victorias Charter of Human Rights. Lee Carnie said Queensland should learn from the Victorian experience and ensure that people have a simple and accessible mechanism to enforce their rights.

"To be effective, its vital that a Queensland Human Rights Act enables people to take action when their rights are being violated. Its good to have your human rights articulated, but what people actually need is an ability to enforce them," said Lee Carnie.

Queensland will become the third Australian jurisdiction to protect human rights in law - the Australian Capital Territory adopted its Human Rights Act in 2004 and Victoria adopted its Charter of Human Rights in 2006.

Lee Carnie said it was time to also properly protect human rights at a national level.

"Given the importance of 'the fair go' in our culture, its really surprising that Australia is the only western democracy that doesnt have a charter or bill of rights. An Australian Charter of Human Rights will better protect our fundamental values in our laws. It will help to ensure that everyone gets a fair go," said Lee Carnie.

Hilton Hotel in Port Moresby is on track for APEC "IndyWatch Feed Niugini"

PNGs Star Mountain Plaza, which will host leaders from around the world at the APEC forum, is expected to open ahead of its planned schedule according to developers.

The landmark Star Mountain Plaza conference, accommodation and retail development is a multi-use facility, designed to help PNG attract more overseas visitors in future generations.

Mineral Resource Development Companies (MRDC) managing director Augustine Mano says construction on the venue is now expected to be completed in September - two months prior to the start of APEC.

Mr Mano says the project is on schedule due to the efforts of more than 800 team members who have worked in shifts 24 hours a day to ensure its early completion.

This workforce is expected to increase by a further 200 over the next six weeks as the interior fit out progresses.

It has been truly humbling to see the passion and national pride that our local workforce has brought to this project. Their dedication has helped us bring to a life a project which will showcase the best of PNG to the worlds leaders later this year, he says

Mr Mano made the comments during an onsite event with local press and stakeholders who also had the opportunity to tour the venue and hear about the handover of the first phase of construction - the hotel and convention centre.

Our project will be delivered in multiple phases enabling Hilton to gradually assume control, It is with great pleasure that we can officially handover the the first area of the new five star hotel and Kutubu convention centre to Hilton.

Over the coming weeks, more areas of the development will be handed over in the lead up to the final construction completion date on 13 September 2018, he says.

Mr Mano says in addition to the conference venue the introduction of the Hilton Hotel brand to the PNG market marks a coming of age for the nation.

The opening of the 212 room Hilton Port Moresby will have wide ranging and long term benefits for the country.

The first guests will be welcomed at the hotel soon after the construction is completed, he says.

Data from independent reports project the Star Mountain Plaza development to bring in more than $235 million Kina in tourism revenue and other economic benefits over a 20 year horizon.

We are creating a legacy asset for future generations of Papua New Guineans. Along with the economic benefits of building th...

Pushing Huawei Out: Australia, the Solomon Islands and the Internet "IndyWatch Feed National"

Be wary of the Chinese technological behemoth, goes the current cry from many circles in Australias parliament.  Cybersecurity issues are at stake, and the eyes of Beijing are getting beadier by the day.

The seedy involvement of Australia in the Solomon Islands, ostensibly to block the influence of a Chinese companys investment venture, is simply testament to the old issues surrounding empire: If your interests are threatened, you are bound to flex some muscle, snort a bit, and, provided its not too costly, get your way.  Not that Canberras muscle is necessarily taut or formidable in any way.

The inspiration behind Canberras intervention was an initial contract between Huawei and the Solomon Islands involving the Chinese giant in a major role building the high-speed telecommunications cable between Sydney and Honiara. Even more disconcerting might be the prospects that it would work, supplying a cable that would enable the Chinese to peer into the Australias own fallible network.

What made this particular flexing odd was the spectacle of an Australian prime minister congratulating himself in securing tax payer funding for the building of a 4,000 kilometre internet cable even as the domestic National Broadband Network stutters and groans.  Another juicy point is that Huawei was banned from applying for tendering for the NBN in 2012.

As the worlds second largest maker of telecommunications equipment was told, there is no role for Huawei in Australias NBN. The then Attorney-General Nicola Roxon explained that the move was consistent with the governments practice for ensuring the security and resilience of Australias critical infrastructure more broadly.  Better an incompetent local provider of appropriate values than a reliable foreign entity.

The move against Huawei has largely centered on fears voiced by the intelligence community in various states that Beijing might be getting a number up on their competitors.  In February this year, the FBI Director Chris Wray expressed the US governments concern about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that dont share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks.  Doing so would enable them to maliciously modify or steal information and provide the capacity to conduct undetected espionage.

Such comments tend to suggest envy; the US intelligence community chiefs know all too we...
