    Funding our beloved ABC

    By the 1970s, combined TV and radio licences could be purchased for $26.50. With ongoing pressure about the inequity of the costs across the community and the heavy cost of policing compliance, the federal Whitlam Government decided on 18 September 1974 to abolish radio and TV licences.

    However, our friends in Pommiland are forced to directly fund their beloved BBC

    BBC TV licence rises to £169 today

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13258911/BBC-TV-licence-rises-169-today.html

    Perhaps if we still had to directly fund the ABC we would have more say in how it is run and have better control over its woke bias?

      Doubtful CO2, The Pom’s don’t have much say in how woke and progressive the BBC has gone.

        At £12 per month for four channels, bbc catch up, Bbc I player, umpteen radio stations, the world service and local news it is terrific value for money. Whilst a small percentage of programmes are woke, the vast majority aren’t

          Why doesn’t that 12 pound fee come with voting rights?

          Let the fee payers vote to replace Gary Lineker and his multi-million pound salary with someone cheaper and less annoyingly ‘woke’.

          Let them vote out the governing board, the Chief Executive, if that’s what they want. It’s people power, init!

            Funnily enough my compulsory car tax also doesn’t come with voting rights nor my compulsory water and electric bills for those of us who live on grid. Why should we vote for matters to do with the BBC?

            Mind you I fully agree with you about Gary Lineker. It baffles me why he is paid so much and has so many fans.

        Seems the Brits don’t mind paying as

        91 per cent of UK adults use BBC television, radio or online each week.

        426 million people access the BBC around the world each week (including World Service, Worldwide and Global News).

      I suppose it’s similar thing (well, in cost anyway) to the Streaming Services, and Britbox is virtually all BBC anyway, with some ITV, and is good viewing really.

    Freedom of Expression

    ‘Arrest me!’: JK Rowling protests Scotland’s new hate crime laws sarcastically urging followers to respect ‘lovely Scottish lass’ convicted double rapist Isla Bryson’s pronouns and ‘fragile flower’ sex attacker Katie Dolatowski in excoriating blast

    The right to freedom of expression is enshrined in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which sets out in broad terms the human rights that each of us has. It was later protected legally by a raft of international and regional treaties?

    One of our culture’s most treasured ideals, freedom of expression, is under threat from various directions, one recently surfacing in two previous bastions of freedom.

    We saw in yesterday’s news, this:

    “One of the world’s strictest hate speech laws came into force in Scotland

    The law, championed by First Minister Hamza Yousaf, will carry prison sentences up 7 years for statements deemed to stir up hate on the grounds of religion, sexual orientation & gender identity”

    Scotland’s First Minister Hamza Yousaf
    Scotland!
    LINK

    Now, here in Australia(!) today’s news:

    “If you attack Allah, if you attack our prophet, our religion and our fellow brothers and sisters, and if you attack our lands, you are going to be met with men who love death more than you love life,” he said, calling on followers to be “worshippers by night and warriors by day.”

    (PAYWALLED)

    Discussion, criticism, questioning, have all been confusingly interpreted by the Left and some of these other enemies of freedom, as hate speech, or attacks.
    These over-sensitive over-reactions are in themselves attacks or hate-speech targeting a fundamental principle of open inquiry.

      Lest we forget Charlie Hebdo

      Thousands of Palestinians marched Saturday in the West Bank in protest over the latest cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad published by French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo,

      Answering calls by the Liberation Party, an Islamist group, demonstrators rallied in the cities of Ramallah and Hebron, some carrying banners expressing faith in Islam and others wearing black headbands calling for the establishment of a Muslim caliphate, AFP photographers said.

      The protests were called in response to a cartoon published by Charlie Hebdo a week after a January 7 attack by Islamist gunmen at its Paris headquarters killed 12 people.

    Three extremely common nutritional deficiencies in Western countries:

    Vitamin D (insufficient sun)
    Vitamin K2 (insufficient fermented foods)
    Magnesium (insufficient green vegetables)

    Correcting those woukd result in a huge improvement in public health but would be bad for Big Pharma and the sickness industry.

    Incidentally, I was surprised about magnesium. I don’t know the figures for Australia but I saw a figure thst 45% of Americans are deficient in it.

      Sauerkraut is fermented cabbage with a distinctive sour flavor. Like with natto, this fermentation process offers many health benefits, like promoting good gut health and boosting immunity. With 2.75 micrograms per half-cup, sauerkraut is also a great source of vitamin K2.

      Sauerkraut with German sausages is a favourite of mine

      Natto is a Japanese dish made from fermented soybeans – have not tried that

        Wrong. I disagree CO2 Lover. Beans fermented and produced K2 and other amazing nutritional and logistic benefits way earlier than the Japanesse Natto timeline which is only recent. I can provide references if you wish.

        Natto is a Japanese food fermented by a cultured Bacillus Subtilis ‘var’ that by selective breeding was initiated to repackage and re-market market this legume fermentation. A market research team found that the soy beans that had previously been consumed widely might make a come back in Japan if the fermentation was not as pungent, and more ‘umami’.

        Before this marketing campaign and rebranding, the consumption of this food was diminishing across Japan. I postulate that prior to the invention of the domestic fridge and refrigeration, there was no choice but to allow many foods to ferment further not only to improve taste, but also to increase the shelf life of the cooked legumes in this instance.

        Before the fridge there was no option other than to let the bacteria Bacillus Subtilis ferment the beans and in turn, just like cheese or yogurtt etc, the fermented beans would last much longer and even longer if the fermented beans were desiccated for later use whilst still retaining the truly amazing probiotic action in the gut.

        I claim that prior to the fridge, even cowboys ate fermented baked beans that would inevitably ferment while last nights leftover beans accompanied the cowboy while on the trail.

        The other day, Kim helped me realise a further iindubitable proof that my postulation was on very firm ground. With this under my belt, i am practically one of those ‘scientists’ that find out about all kinds of things.

        Ah, Yes. 😁️

        The ultimate proof to me by Kim (Thanks Kim 🙂 )of what happened to beans historically when not refrigerated with some historical footage. B Subtilis fermenteation of legumes happened in all cultures and in all places on the planet prior to the invention of the fridge. 🙂

          Talking about natto all the time only prolongs the obfuscation of this fermented food fermented by B Subtilis, also known as Hay Bacteria as a common name..

          In Nepal the fermentation was called Kinema, in Korea cheongukjang, in southafrica Obiri…..and many other names guises and vectors.

              from: https://www.soyinfocenter.com/books/151/

              Dr. Hanzawa began by making a pure-culture bacterial inoculum for natto; this enabled commercial natto manufacturers, for the first time, to discontinue the use of rice straw as a source of inoculum. Secondly, disliking the use of rice straw even as a wrapper, he developed a simple, low-cost method for packing, incubating, and selling natto wrapped in paper-thin sheets of pine wood (kyōgi) or small boxes of pine veneer (oribako). A third important improvement followed shortly; the development of a new incubation room design (bunka muro), which had an air vent on the ceiling and substantially decreased the natto failure rate. These three developments laid the basis for modern industrial, sanitary, scientific natto manufacture. Commercial natto makers filled his classes and he worked as a consultant for them. Like Dr. Muramatsu before him, Dr. Hanzawa sold his “University Natto” from his research lab, promoting it as a rival to cheese. He was given the appellation of “the father of modern natto production.” In 1971 he was given the honor of addressing the emperor of Japan on the subject of natto.

              from:

              1051-1083 – The origin of natto is obscure. According to legend, it was discovered accidentally in northeast Japan by Minamoto (Hachimantaro) Yoshiie when warm, cooked soybeans, placed in a rice-straw sack on the back of a horse, turned into natto. The warmth of the horse helped the fermentation.

              Love that this concurs with “The warmth of the horse helped the fermentation”

    A flaw in the cunning plan to do protest cash withdrawals today. Our local town ran out of cash on the weekend. Empty ATMs (2 off) and the supermarket stopped doing cash outs.

      I saw a notice in my supermarket (Coles) that their cash out policy had changed and they would now only give up to $200 cash out and only with a purchase.

      Also, the closest ATM to me (Commbank) is nearly always empty.

      It is so reliably empty I don’t even bother going to it anymore but one much further away.

        I would guess the commercial banks don’t like handing out cash because that eats into their reserves.

        They prefer you to deal in the credit money that they create themselves. “Loans create Deposits” as some economists like to describe it.

        As an aside, I know that granting a mortgage loan to a customer creates new money in our banking system but I’d like someone to explain to me how banks pay their own bills — i.e. salaries, bonuses to staff, furniture, computers, rent etc. Anyone know?

        I suspect it’s another case of ‘creating money out of thin air’ which–if I’m right–means NEW money is credited into existence every time they pay one of their own bills.

          “I suspect it’s another case of ‘creating money out of thin air’ which–if I’m right–means NEW money is credited into existence every time they pay one of their own bills.”

          They keep the money we pay as interest while writing off the principal we pay back. That interest pays all their expenses and gives them a profit. So all the money created in the loan gets written off, but your wages to pay the interest have to come from somewhere… Someone else’s loan…

          In theory, as all money is created as a debt it can never be paid back with interest. Its a ponzi scheme and it will be interesting to see how it fails.

    Bird Flu in Cows?

    This research had been going on for some time.

    The deadliest influenza strain in history was the 1918 pandemic, which was estimated to have killed 50 million people. H5N1 has killed more than half of people it infects, and while it’d likely become less lethal when modified to be more transmissible, it’s very, very dangerous.

    In 2011, two different groups of researchers announced plans to publish research in which they’d modified H5N1 — in ferrets, not in humans — to make it transmissible through the air. Other scientists objected. In an open letter to the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues signed by leaders in the field, including several Nobel laureates, they argued that it’s “morally and ethically wrong” to manipulate viruses to make them more deadly. The research teams studying H5N1 argued that their better understanding of the virus would allow for improved strategies to keep us safe.

    In 2014, work like this was put on hold after a moratorium from the U.S. government. But now, those same two research labs — the lab of Yoshihiro Kawaoka, of the University of Wisconsin in Madison and the University of Tokyo, and the lab of Ron Fouchier at Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands — have gotten the green light to continue their research.

    Hence the relatives of the Ferret took a hit.

    ISRAEL STRIKES IRAN IN DAMASCUS

    The IDF has struck the IRGC’s Syria/Lebanon leadership inside the building next to Iran’s embassy in Damascus. The strike reportedly killed seven members of the IRGC including the top Iranian commander in Syria. If so, that would be seven for the price of one. The Times of Israel reports the story here. The Israelis have awesome intelligence.

    The accuracy of the hit is amazing if this post is correct

    The building that was hit is literally in the middle between the embassy of Iran and the Canadian embassy. For Israel to go for such a strike there’s possibly a senior target.

    Vaccinated lettuce anyone?

    A bill that would classify as a drug certain foods with vaccine materials added to them was passed by the Tennessee Senate and now awaits Governor Bill Lee’s signature into law amid concerns about research on putting immunity boosters into lettuce.

    The proposed law, HB 1894, was passed in a 23-6 Senate vote last Thursday after getting the House’s green light in a 73-22 vote in early March.

    It would classify any food that “contains a vaccine or vaccine material” as a drug under Tennessee law, meaning the food would have to be labeled accordingly. The bill defines vaccine material as a substance intended to “stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against disease.”

    The legislation would not ban vaccine-imbued foods from being sold in the state but would require them to carry the same sort of medical labeling as injectable vaccines or medications.

    These NEOCONs are putting the entire civilization at risk for their personal hatred. They never consider what if they are wrong. The price of that mistake will be catastrophic. As the government realizes it is losing, it will become far more aggressive in the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. Expect restrictions on everything as well as food rationing. This is what these people are doing, for we live in an autocracy, precisely what they accuse Putin of doing. We have no right to vote on anything of substance – these are all their decisions – not ours!

    JC2 tip Tuesday: Shonky solar panels and how to avoid them

    There are a lot of “bargains” out there on eBay, Amazon and other sites offering solar panels at great prices.
    The simple reality is that they’re lying through their teeth.
    Take for example a 300W 12v flex panel on eBay for $190.
    A bargain, right?
    No, it isn’t. Ignoring poor quality manufacturing, short lifespan and the fact that sun exposure (!!!) causes them to fail in under a year, their specs are totally fraudulent.
    25% efficient? In your dreams. Could be between 17-23% depending on cell quality, and low cost panels can mean B-grade cells, just like “bargain” LiFePO4 batteries.
    Compact size? A sure sign the specs are fake.
    ISO9001? LOL…
    Using the same 300W flex panel, the dimensions are 1170x770mm.
    Amazingly compact! So, how to get a good one?
    Calculate the panel area.
    In this case it’s 1.17x.77m = 0.99 sq m.
    Multiply by 170 to get wattage, so 150W.
    Wow, HALF the claimed power, snd that’s on a good sunny day.

    So, buy a reputable brand like Renogy, Sunpower, Baintech, Solbain, SunX etc. (I went with Renogy).
    Yes they’re expensive, your wallet will hurt, but the specs are accurate.

    Other factors to consider when talking power;
    Manufacturers tolerance, say 3%, so a possible loss of 9W in 300.
    Dirt and muck on panels – reduce output by 5%
    Temperature derating 12-20%
    DC cable losses, inverter efficiency losses and AC losses can add up to 10% or so.
    At the end of the line, your 300W panel may be effectively a 220W one, and that’s with optimum solar radiation input!
    So be aware and watch out!

    “If War Comes” Swedish City Will Serve-up Mashed Larvae Instead of Beef

    The Swedish city of Södertälje, just outside Stockholm, has decided to be at the forefront of “climate smart” and “sustainable” eating habits—apparently in particular when it comes to tacos.

    The cafeteria in city hall, in an effort by the city to “support businesses that develop sustainable foods,” recently tested the waters by serving its patrons tacos with mashed larvae instead of the customary beef.

    According to Sara Seing, the city’s dietary manager, the mashed larvae—no joke—taste like chicken.

    Everything tastes like chicken!

    “Not conducive to marital bliss”

    “On March 26, in Lozovaya, Kharkov region, the head of the local
    military registration and enlistment office presented awards to
    women who surrendered their husbands to the military
    recruitment.

    According to the local military recruitment: “The wives could no
    longer continue to cover for the draft dodgers and began to
    demand that they go defend their country.”

    When their husbands refused, the wives called the military
    commissars. They decided to reward the women for their
    services to the military.

    Sulfur Better than Hydrogen for Energy Storage, Engineers Find
    Sabine Hossenfelder
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5MaWQBxzZ8

    It’s a thermochemical process which requires heat input to work. Apparently it needs to be built into a CSP plant. I don’t know why you couldn’t use grid power to run a heater to do the same thing. More efficient than Hydrogen storage, but still only 26% efficiency.
    Spoiler: She reckons no storage method is efficient and versatile enough to firm up intermittent energy generators.
    Sounds like another dud in a raft of duds for solving the problem that shouldn’t even exist in the first place if they’d just stick to reliable energy generators.

    The youngster I build racing cars with mentioned that CAMS is putting a ‘commercial pilot’s’ level medical test in place for motorsport. I immediately wondered if they are chasing the likely instant heart attacks amongst younger people, and looked it up.

    The current one is at the link below, and I wouldn’t play their game at all if they wanted that level of personal information from me. Driving a car has nothing to do with whether or not I smoke, my BMI, or what my lipid levels are, or what my urine contains, or my glucose levels, or..

    “Are there any unfavourable traits in applicant’s personality, revealed by history, appearance or behaviour”

    The stupidity of wanting that for motorsport when I can drive my own car to and from the venue just doesn’t occur to them. I can see why the numbers of people taking up motorsport are falling..
