Retired Brisbane magistrate William John Randall found guilty of child-sex charges "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Randall, who retired just last year from his position as referee in the Small Claims Tribunal after years on the bench, continues to maintain his innocence.

He pleaded not guilty in the Brisbane District Court last week to 18 charges including maintaining a relationship with a child, indecent treatment and sexual assault.

His lawyers cross-examined the victim in the witness box about the allegations, accusing him of fabricating lies about being abused hundreds of times so he could later sue Randall.

However, the jury dismissed this and returned guilty verdicts.

Randall was on Tuesday sentenced to nine years jail, and will be eligible for parole after serving half of that time.

Judge Catherine Muir described Randalls behaviour as shocking and reprehensible.

Extract ABC Australia article on this matter

 

Queensland magistrate William Randall will get a very hard time in jail and will have to be in protective custody. Even in protective custody, he wont be safe. Every time he steps out of his cell, hell be a target.

4.5 to 9 years is a very long time to spend in jail under those circumstances.

William Randall is fortunate not to live in California, where hed be jailed for life, Indonesia, where hed be chemically castrated or worse, or ISIS areas of Syria, where hed be thrown off a building.

Retired Brisbane magistrate William John Randall found guilty of child-sex charges

Cory Bernardi and the Australian Christian Lobbys call arms "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Contributed by Joe Montero

At last Saturdays (17 November 2017) national conference of the Australian Christian Lobby in Sydney, Senator Cory Bernardi told the delegates that the campaign against same-sex marriage in Australia was an extraordinary success, despite losing the national postal survey.

These were not the words of a deluded and frustrated individual. They were calculated and had a specific purpose. They were concerned with what to do in the period after the overwhelming victory of the Yes vote.

For Bernardi and those who agreed with him, the Conference was an occasion to get on with the next phase of bringing a collective view of the world that would propel Australia into the Middle Ages, where religion and politics were intertwined and any deviation from the prescribed format would not be tolerated.

The Senator had left the Liberal Party earlier this year, because in his view it had moved away from from conservative principle. He went on to form the Australian Conservative Party. The title is inaccurate because the Bernardi view of the world has nothing to do with conservatism and a lot more to do with with the reactionary radicalism that he shares with others in the Australian Christian Lobby and outside it.  The difference is important.  The radicals do not seek to keep the status quo, but to change it in their own direction.

The Australian Christian Lobby claims to represent Christianity in Australia. It does nothing of the sort. A significant of its leadership and support comes form a section of the Pentecostal tradition. Hillsong is intimately connected and jointly sponsored the Coalition for Marriage.  There are business money links. There are links to the Sydney based traditionalist leadership of the Methodist and Catholic churches. There is also a close connection with similarly minded factions in the Liberal and National parties.

The model and inspiration for the Australian Christian Lobby is what is often called the American Christian Right, which emerged in opposition to the ending of segregation and the schools and bussing in black children.

One of the two original founders is the retired Baptist minister and Queensland businessman,...

Wilkie backs push against parliament delay "GroovUs Feed Anews"

CANBERRA [AAP]

Crossbench MP Andrew Wilkie says the federal parliament has a moral imperative to sit next week as Turnbull government ministers line up to defend deferring the lower house session.

Labor has drafted a letter petitioning Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to reverse his decision to postpone the House of Representatives sitting to December 4.

Victorian independent Cathy McGowan has confirmed she will not take part in any protest sitting, but her four crossbench colleagues are expected to co-sign Labors letter.

Their support would mean 73 MPs support the push the same number the government has on the floor of the house with Barnaby Joyce and John Alexander off fighting by-elections.

With numbers being that close surely theres a moral imperative if not a legal imperative on the prime minister agreeing that the parliament would sit next week, Mr Wilkie told ABC Radio.

Leader of the House Christopher Pyne said the delay would give the Senate time to pass the same-sex marriage bill and allow parliament to sort out the dual citizenship mess.

However, the announcement came just hours after Queensland LNP senator Barry OSullivan said up to four coalition MPs were considering breaking coalition ranks to vote for an inquiry into the banks.

Mr Pyne insisted the decision to delay the return of parliament had nothing to do with thwarting Labor or rogue government backbenchers mustering the necessary votes to launch an investigation into the banks.

Theres no motion or bill to establish a banking royal commission either before the Senate or the House of Representatives, he told ABC radio.

Treasurer Scott Morrison also played down the link but Opposition Leader Bill Shorten grabbed it with both hands.

There is no doubt in my mind that one of the reasons why Mr Turnbull has cancelled parliament next week is because he knows a banking royal commission is inevitable, Mr Shorten said.

And he will do everything he can d...

Labors nose in front in Qld: poll "GroovUs Feed Anews"

A nose in front: Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk AAP Image/Dan Peled

BRISBANE [AAP]

Queensland Labor has its nose in front of the LNP with just days left until the state vote.

A ReachTEL poll, for Sky News, has Labor ahead of the LNP 51 per cent to 49, after preferences.

Labor is also ahead on the primary vote, with 34 per cent of Queenslanders saying theyll vote for the incumbent party, to the LNPs 30 per cent. One Nation has 17 per cent support, while the Greens are on 10 per cent.

This is the first time that Labor has gained the lead in a two-party result, in a ReachTEL poll. So its certainly a move, ReachTELs James Stewart has told Sky News.

ReachTEL also polled voters in three marginal seats.

Labor and One Nation are neck and neck in the Labor-held seat of Thuringowa, with both parties on 50 per cent in the Townsville-based electorate.

The contest for the LNP-held seat of Whitsunday has One Nation on 50.5 per cent to Labors 49.5 per cent.

In Brisbanes western suburbs, Labors Local Government Minister Mark Furner is expected to hang on to the marginal seat of Ferny Grove, with the poll suggesting hell manage 54 per cent of the vote, to the LNPs 46 per cent.

Anning defection hits One Nation

But the defection of former One Nation senator Fraser Anning has hurt the partys prospects in the Queensland election, another poll suggests.

A statewide Galaxy poll for The Courier-Mail, conducted late last week, shows two out of five Queenslanders are now less likely to support Pauline Hansons party.

Senator Anning split with One Nation an hour after being sworn in in Canberra, claiming Senator Hanson forced him out, but the One Nation leader says he quit.

The Galaxy poll of more than 1000 Queenslanders showed 41 per cent are less likely to hand their vote to One Nation because of what happened in Canberra.

But it also found 46 per cent of poll respondents werent influenced by the defection, and seven per cent are now more likely to back the party.

Senator Hanson will hit the campaign trail in her battler bus again on Tuesday, after taking...

"Butterflies..." "IndyWatch Feed National"

"I think humans might be like butterflies; people die every day without many other people knowing about them, seeing their colors, hearing their stories... and when humans are broken, they're like broken butterfly wings; suddenly there are so many beauties that are seen in different ways, so many thoughts and visions and possibilities that form, which couldn't form when the person wasn't broken! So it is not a very sad thing to be broken, after all! It's during the times of being broken, that you have all the opportunities to become things unforgettable! Just like the broken butterfly wing that I found, which has given me so many thoughts, in so many ways, has shown me so many words, and imaginations! But butterflies need to know, that it doesn't matter at all if the whole world saw their colors or not! But what matters is that they flew, they glided, they hovered, they saw, they felt, and they knew! And they loved the ones whom they flew with! And that is an existence worthwhile!"

Thursday & Quicksand "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Post-hardcore pioneers, THURSDAY announce theyre coming out of retirement with their first run of shows in Australia since 2012. Officially reforming in 2016, theyll bring the tour to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide in March 2018. Joining them on all dates is influential New York City post-hardcore legends, QUICKSAND.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 12pm this Friday, October 13.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning tomorrow at 10am, October 11.

For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: livenation.com.au.

Revered for their anguished lyrics, chiming guitars and explosive stage presence, Thursday have been a house-hold name among punk and rock fans since their debut release, Waiting, 18 years ago. Coming out of New Jersey in 1999 at the precipice of the post-punk movement, Thursday were quick to gain the attention of fans and labels with their raw, emotive sound. However, it wasnt until their 2001 album, Full Collapse, that they fully defined a genre.

Over the course of their active years, Thursday produced six eclectic albums. None were more representative of their distinctive sound than 2003s War All The Time. Armed with the backing of major label, Island Records, the album continued to elevate them as one of the most complex and exciting bands of the decade. After pioneering the post-hardcore genre, the band officially disbanded in 2013.

Emerging from the New York City hardcore scene of the 90s, QUICKSAND delivered a masterclass over two albums on what would be a stylistic blueprint for many bands to follow. They will release Interiors this November, which many attribute as their best album to date. It arrives deliberately unannounced, two decades after the pioneering post-hardcore quartets last album. Made completely on the bands own terms, Interiors has a power, strength and subtlety that will likely stun you. There are no wasted notes, no flab, and no excess whatsoever. It is absolutely perfect.

Catch these two genre-defining acts together this March!.......................

The Black Swamp & Massic "GroovUs Feed Anews"

 

Witches, wolves and cosmonauts

Teaming up for this double headliner launch show are Australian sludge-metal outfit The Black Swamp and hardcore groove act Massic.

This show marks the beginning of the touring cycle for TBSs new release Witches. The EP is the recording debut of new vocalist Luke Hosking (Azreal), who slots in seamlessly with the band once again channelling the riff driven influences of Black Sabbath through to Crowbar. With anthem-like choruses and infectious grooves, this new offering and their established back catalogue will have heads nodding in The Zoo.

With their debut LP Redshift, Massic has captured an honest, raw and abrasive sound, delivering 33 minutes of musical intensity, massive riffs and head-banging grooves. Theyve quickly built a reputation for their live performance, delivering their sound with as much conviction, passion and energy as physically and mentally possible. This will be on full display and then some as they continue their emergence into the Australian heavy music stratosphere.

This launch isnt just the start of new musical escapades, its a rallying point for Flaming Wrekage and the Swamp, with the former celebrating 1 year since the release of their thrash-groove opus From Flesh to Dust. Brisbane is the first in a string of national shows under the banner of the Witches & Wolves Tour seeing the quartet continue the campaign for Flesh. With many miles underfoot, the Wrekage crew certainly know how to incite a bangover wherever they roam. Prepare your necks for a ferocious thrashing!

Making their fitting debut at the Zoo is Elephant a heavy metal band derived from members of hard rock riff-masters The Flame Fields. Excellent musicianship abounds in this herd; make sure to stampede in early and bear witness to the beginning of their mammoth-like riffage!

Protesters occupy Adani Headquarters in Townsville "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Townsville, 20th November: Twenty people are occupying the Adani Headquarters in Townsville, including three people who have locked themselves together in front of the entrance to prevent Adani workers accessing their office.

Donna, Will and Tully, who are locked on, are taking this action today to send a clear message that Adani should not be given $1 billion of taxpayer money and that the Carmichael coal mine should not go ahead.

Will Hamilton, 66, currently locked on and a former property developer from Brisbane, says With all its negative consequences on our environment, Australians all over the country are expressing their total rejection of the Adani Coal mine proposal. We take this action in the belief that others will become more aware of these issues and join us in raising their voices against the Adani coal mine proposal.

Protest against Adani has been amplifying across Australia, including on the ground at the construction site and at their headquaters in Townsville. In recent weeks several people from Frontline Action on Coal have been arrested occupying the Adani offices and disrupting construction of the Adani-owned railway.

Adani is a key focus of the Queensland election, with Palaszczuk earlier this month promising to veto the $1 billion loan to Adani to build the railway. Recent polls have shown that two thirds of Queenslanders oppose taxpayer money funding the Adani railway. Despite this, the LNP have not ruled out providing $1 billion of taxpayer money to Adani.

Donna Smit, 48, a systems analyst from Queensland who is also currently locked on, says I am here today because our Governments and corporations are failing us. Ordinary people taking extraordinary action is the corner they have painted us into, and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to stop Adanis catastrophic mine from being built.

Tully Doole, 22, is from the south coast of NSW and is worried about the future. She says I dont want to be responsible for the extreme weather, the bush fires, the floods, the droughts and the death of the great barrier reef.

Suing over motorcycle crash too costly Motorbike Writer

A rider who crashed on a badly repaired road has rejected suing the authority that knew of the problem because it would be too costly.

Sydney rider Stephen Thomas, 69, crashed his 2011 Honda VFR800X Crossrunner at 50km/h on the shoddy roadworks on Mt Glorious in Brisbanes hinterland on October 10, 2017.

Transport and Main Roads (TMR) knew about the slippery molten tar surface after being alerted to the problem by riders and a report on this website.

Even on mild days, the surface had molten tar and was treacherous for riders.

Melting tar claims first crash victim Mt Glorious costlySub-par roadworks at Mt Glorious a sticky mess of tar

TMR responded to the complaints by placing an electronic 50km/h warning sign on the corner, but it didnt help Stephen.

His bike low-sided into a guardrail and fell over, breaking his leg.

Stephen didnt realise and rode home 1000km to Sydney where he later found the extent of his injuries.

EP 228: The Scientists "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Ep 228 Instagram

Photo: Mark Louttit

The Scientists

Recorded and mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 4th November 2017

The Scientists first formed in Perth as The Exterminators and then The Invaders in 1977. Once they became The Scientists in 1978, they then released their first single Frantic Romantic/Shake (Together Tonight) in June 1979 on the D.N.A. Records label. After a debut LP (commonly referred to as The Pink Album) and a number of lineup changes, the band relocated to Sydney in 1982.

This change in scenery and lineup also saw The Scientists change musical direction. Pop-infused punk rock was traded in for a more psychedelic style of swampy, blues rock n roll. The band was signed by Au Go Go Records who released two singles as well as the influential Blood Red River LP in the space of a year, making them one of Australias most popular independent bands at the time. But another move was soon on the cards.
