Reasons why we should follow the sun

THE future of our community energy needs are clear to me, right there in the name created by Clement John De Garis when he got £20,000 from the Australian Dried Fruit Association to promote our district and its produce in the 1920s: Sunraysia.
Nanjing Night Net

The one constant thing in our region, the ever-shining sun, can be our ticket to boosting our economy.

We can lead the change in the way ­energy is produced and sold in our region, and ­nation.

We have the opportunity to harness this natural resource, on both a small and large scale.

Australians are the greatest investors in rooftop solar in the world and, if coupled with battery systems, we can increase our own energy independence.

Combine this personal approach with community action and we could be looking for funding at local, state and federal levels.

Public and private investment in the creation of a new local industry around solar generation and housing could make us net producers of energy.

The clean-tech revolution is a critical ­issue, a great opportunity for our community, one I feel our leaders have overlooked in favour of a reliance on coal.

Stronger advocacy for energy security and publicly purchased and owned systems could offset rates and other costs in the ­municipality once initial costs were recouped.

Sunraysia is in a prime geographical location to capitalise on the clean-tech revolution.

Along with more autonomy by meeting our own energy needs and supplying a surplus to the growing green market, we should strive to become a regional hub for administration through the Murray-Darling Basin.

Let’s consider a great leap forward for our region, using the advantages of our location to meet the essential goals of energy and ­water security for a better future.

False connection between winds and turbines

by admin on March 20th, 2019

filed under 南京夜网

AS new One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts demands “empirical evidence” for ­climate change, here it is.
Nanjing Night Net

Those SA wind turbines, once they were built, huffed and puffed and just blew down 20 transmission towers in a catastrophe that has devastated an “embarrassed” state.

Ironic really – the correlation is so tight that this has to be the case. You have the wind turbines and the transmission towers are blown down.

Even Prime Minister Turnbull has said energy targets were the cause (“let’s get the balance right”).

This of course means burning more coal while we can get away with it.

I guess that means the multi-billion­-dollar cost of repair facing SA won’t be ­included in the money we spend to subsidise the coal and oil industry at about $9 billion per year.

I’d say there’s an alternative view. The wind turbines didn’t blow down those transmission towers, the extreme wind and weather event did.

There is, in measured reality land, so much more energy in the earth’s weather systems. It is we who’ve created an ever-increasing blanket of heat trapping gases.

It is this extra energy that is heating the land, water and air and in turn this is the real cause of dramatic, high-cost and destructive weather events. Mr Turnbull, the renewable energy targets for the future didn’t cause this catastrophe – we are living in the present.

The transmission towers falling over had nothing to do with the generation systems, which included wind turbines.

It is extra energy, like turning up the gas under a saucepan of water – the more there is the greater the impact. It will get worse and quickly as the energy trap is in exponential growth.

The outcome is called climate change, man-made and supported by those with vested interests. What are yours?

Mental health issues need our daily focus

by admin on March 20th, 2019

filed under 南京夜网

October is Mental Health Month, during which we put extra emphasis on understanding and recognising mental health issues.
Nanjing Night Net

It is important to reflect on this, but I implore everyone to extend their reflection outside October.

Signs of mental health issues can be hard to detect or even deliberately hidden, therefore mental health awareness should be something we think about on a daily basis.

This year’s theme for Mental Health Month is “Learn and Grow”.

My organisation, Youth Off The Streets has, and always will, encourage our young people to constantly learn about recognising and coping with various mental health issues.

Our services provide psychologists, counsellors and trained youth workers to give our young people the best possible support they so desperately need, but we still cannot reach every affected young Australian.

I have dedicated my life to helping the disadvantaged youth of Australia turn their lives around, and as such I have seen many of our youth struggle with a broad spectrum of mental illnesses.

These illnesses are severely affecting our youth, with a significant number of cases developing in to long-term issues or even resulting in suicide.

Without continuous care and support, our young people run the risk of developing these long-term issues and this is simply not something we can allow to happen.

Using this chance to tackle mental health issues in young people is crucial, as giving young people support and coping mechanisms in such a transitional period of life sets them up for a successful future. Youth Off The Streets will always advocate for young people in their battle with mental health issues.

However, this month I call for more to be done. I ask that we take this Mental Health Month as an opportunity to grow as a nation and stand by our young people.

CEO and Founder at Youth Off The Streets

Monster Jam coming to Brisbane, and our reporter takes it for a test drive

by admin on March 20th, 2019

filed under 南京夜网

Monster Jam ambassador Rhianna Buchanan in Brisbane ahead of the show on October 1. Photo: Robert ShakespeareI can’t say driving a monster truck was on my bucket list, because I never imagined it would actually happen.
Nanjing Night Net

But a few days after getting the offer, I’m strapped into a five-point harness inside the one-seater Alien Invasion at QSAC on Brisbane’s southside. And she’s roaring, insisting we should go.

It’s a towering white machine, with hard black wheels around a green centre, and leaning on the accelerator with my right foot makes her jump and rattle.

Monster Jam ambassador Rhianna Buchanan gives me some sage advice before I hop in the seat: “It’s all about controlling your enthusiasm.”

“You are so protected and you feel so incredibly safe – you’ve got all the right gear on,” she said.

“But as soon as that engine starts up, you are going to get incredibly excited.

“It’s about making the absolute most of the experience – not everyone gets to drive a 5500kg monster truck, it’s 4 metres wide, 4 metres tall.

“It’s enormous and you are in control of everything.”

Ms Buchanan, who is also an announcer and stuntwoman, said she grew up riding bikes, growing up in Beaudesert and the Logan area.

“I learnt how to drive at an early age, ATVs, buggies, absolutely anything I could get my hands on,” she said.

Ms Buchanan, 29, said there were about 10 female Monster Jam drivers.

“There’s 10 women getting out there every weekend in the stadium and really putting it to the guys and putting on a great show for all the fans out there,” she said.

“It’s something we’re seeing in a lot of different motorsports these days, which is really fantastic, and I hope that I can not only help encourage it but help encourage other girls out there.”

While Ms Buchanan has completed her first stage of training at Monster Jam University, and hopes to drive the trucks on tour in 2017, I’m an extremely long way from giving up my day job.

No taking on the Grave Digger, flying over jumps and crushing cars for me just yet.

I awkwardly haul myself up into the driver’s seat, wearing my restrictive and toasty warm safety gear, where I’m so securely tied in that I can barely move my head and shoulders.

The crew gives a rundown of the controls.

You’re in park, “just like an automatic”, they say. Put your foot on the brake, pull the power lever, pull the fuel level, flick a switch, and the metal and rubber machine shudders to life.

It has first and second gears, but I’m told to stick to first. And don’t forget to push the fuel lever back in and return to park, with a foot on the brake when you turn it off.

Oh, and you can steer using the front wheels via a detachable steering wheel and the back wheels using a switch that presses right or left.

I run through the sequence again and again in my mind but strangely I’m not scared.

We test the kill switch via the radio that gives the people who actually know how to drive these things the ability to shut the Alien Invasion down if I get into trouble. That’s very reassuring.

And then it’s time to drive.

I get off to a slow start, but it feels pretty fast and there’s only a few moments where the Alien feels like it lurches forward. But in retrospect that’s probably the opposite of what you want from your monster truck.

And when I’m cornering at the end of the straight, I realise I’m only turning the switch to turn the back wheels left – not the actual steering wheel. The steering wheel that is for, you know, steering.

I get a bit stuck in the corner, so the instructor runs over and tells me to chuck it into reverse and do a three-point turn.

I’ve got this, I think to myself. Want me to do a reverse-parallel park next? You got it.

Back down the other end of the field and I can’t… seem.. to.. get… Alien… to… turn and keep moving. The motor is running, but I’m only bouncing forward and back a little. It’s confounding.

Turns out I should have hit the gas a bit harder.

I just thought I was stuck in the grass. Because the mortal enemy of a 5 tonne supercharged machine – named after the futuristic potential annihilation of the human race – is lush, green grass.

So, I’m not going to be the next superstar of Monster Jam.

But I had a damn good time.

Monster Jam will be at QSAC at Nathan on October 1.

Two years on, Carly McBride laid to rest

TweetFacebookAS the awful weeks turned into heartbreakingmonths, the shattered family of murder victim Carly McBride made tearful plea after plea to bring their “sweetheart”home.

On Friday, exactly two years after she was murdered and dumped off a lonely Upper Hunter road, the popular mother of two was farewelled at an emotional funeral service at Ryhope.

“Everyone here would have had the question asked to them: where’s Carly,’’ her brave father, Steve McBride, told the 200 mourners.

“Does anyone know where Carly is.Some of you have been hearing me say that for a lot longer than two years.

“Try a lifetime. It is an old saying, there is nothing new about it.

“But, you will never have to listen to me ask that again because we know where you are Carly.

“You are everywhere.”

Carly, 31, vanished during a visit to see one of her children at Muswellbrook on September 30, 2014.

She remained missing for 678 days before her remains were discovered last month only metres off Bunnan Road, west of Scone.

FAREWELLED: Mother Carly McBride was remembered on the second anniversary of her disappearance and murder.

Her killer remains at large, although Strike Force Karabi investigators remain confident they will get their man.

The funeral service, at Lake Macquarie Memorial Park, heard about justice coming for the mother and popular Belmont woman.

But possibly the most emotional words spoken werefrom her grieving father.

“Carls, I have always tried to be there for you, whenever you needed me and no matter what the circumstances,’’ Mr McBride said.

“I’m just so sorry I wasn’t there when you needed me more than ever.

“Rest in peace, sweetheart.We will always love you and we will never forget you.”

Mother Lorraine Williams told the congregation that finding Carly had allowed her to finally rest.

“We are very lucky to be able to send Carly off to the dreaming and I know that her grandmother’s looking after her,’’ she said.

“And I know she is at peace now and has some serenity.

“She is always here with us and always in our hearts and we will never forget her.

“No one can take away our memories of Carly away, of her big laugh.I feel she is here with us now.”

The service heard of a “bubbly, beautiful, free-spirited person” who loved horses and was immensely popular before her children released butterflies into their air in tribute.

Lost time

filed under 南京夜网

ABOVE average rainfall throughout recent months has seen Burton Contractors lose one and a half months of work on the$85 million upgrade to the Great Western Highway at Kelso.
Nanjing Night Net

However, a spokesperson for Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) saysthe project is still on track for a mid-2017 completion.

According to the spokesperson,alternative plans wereput in place to allow Burton Contractors to meet the deadline.

“While significant rainfall since the start of winter has meant the project team has lost about one and a half months of work, Burton Contractors and Roads and Maritime Services have been able to reschedule activities to minimise the impact,” the spokesperson said.

The weather is just one issue facing Burton’s this coming week.

With the October long weekend underway andthe Bathurst 1000 fast approaching, the company will need to make allowances for the additional traffic moving through the city.

“For the October long weekend and next week, two lanes from View Street westbound into Bathurst and two lanes from Gilmourto View streets have been opened to manage traffic flow during the holiday break,” the RMS spokesperson said.

“The Lee Street detour will remain open so motorists heading to Oberon can bypass the roadwork.”

Motorists are askedto take care, particularly when travelling through the work site,and to keep to the signposted speed limit during thistime.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole saidBurton Contractors “has done an incredible job” despite all the rain and motorists need to be patient as work continues on the major infrastructure project.

“We’ve experienced quite a bit of wet weather, but we are still expecting completion around mid next year,” he said.

Under construction.

TweetFacebookThe Riverina has copped a soaking over the last several weeks and there’s plenty more on the way, but that hasn’t stopped thousands from packing the ute and hitting the road for the Deni Ute Muster.

The muster officially opened on Friday morning and the 2016 star attraction Keith Urban is certain to bring in a bumper crowd for the 18thannual muster.

The line-up for early camping areas snaked its way for several kilometres right through the Deniliquin township on Thursday as keen muster-goers turned up for the weekend.

It’s be the first wet Deni Ute Muster in several years, and ute paddock campers are living it up in the mud.

Even if the sun emerges, the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a top temperature15 degrees on Saturday.

NHW call for security increase

Watch: Sergeant Andy Stott and Cris Allen were special guests at Kingston Neighbourhood Watch’s annual meeting last week.
Nanjing Night Net

The Neighbourhood Watch in Kingston met for its annual meeting last week.

Sergeant Andy Stott, head of the Neighbourhood Watch groups for the Limestone Coast,and Cris Allen, coordinator for one of the Mount Gambier areas for Neighbourhood Watch,travelled from Mount Gambier to be guest speakers at the meeting, which proved a huge success.

Many great ideas on community and business safety were shared and Kingston’s NHW group was commended on its activity and community involvement.

Committee: Pauline Williams, John Hall, Constable Michael Ringshaw, Gail Hetherington and Ken Williams.

“They came down and gave some ideas to help us keep trying to get funds because we’re trying to get enough money to fund 26 security cameras in Kingston at various points to assist in NHW of businesses and homes,” said NHW committee member Pauline Williams.

“We’ve got 26 locations that Constable Michael Ringshaw, the Neighbourhood Watch police representativehere, has pointed out that he feels are the areas that should be watched,” she said.

“We’ll be settingone up at the top of Caltex for drive-offs, and also one that covers the T-section that goes to Millicent.

“Some people feel that it’s a little bit like a Big Brother thing having it, but it’s not really, it’s to make the town secure for the odd occasion when you do have an untoward person.

“And it’s also a good thing for anyone who might have a fall or something like that, because there arecameras that will pick that up.”

Mrs Williams explained that summer creates more opportunities for crimes to be committed, due to the relaxed nature of the season.

“People are on holidays, they get really relaxed, leave the boats parked outside withfishing gear and all sorts of things in,” she said. “So, summer creates more chances for people to do the wrong thing.

“People are very surprised at what the crime rate is.There’s a lot that goes on at night time.I think people are still surprised about some of the activity that goes on that they don’thear or see.”

Kingston’s NHW is a relatively new group that has only been in operation for four years, with approximately 20 members.The group meets every two months and is hoping to attract members of a younger demographic.

“It’s not a heavy load, we just keep an eye on things and report anything that we think may be dangerous,” said Mrs Williams.
