AUSTRALIA'S DISGRACE...IT'S EMBARRASSING..SHAME ON US ALL!


AUSTRALIANS living with a disability have the

 worst quality  of life in the developed world

 and their employment  opportunities

 have hit rock bottom.

Currently almost one in two people with a disability in Australia lives in or near a state of poverty while globally, Australia is at the bottom of the heap, ranked last out of 27 OECD countries

Governor-General, Quentin Bryce, who said it highlighted the need for ''a cultural shift in attitudes towards Australian living with a disability: from passive sympathy and understanding, to actively encouraging and championing a better quality of life''.



The report identified four key principles that should form the basis of the approach to fixing the nation's ''appalling current standings'' in the disability sector.
They were:

■To recognise people with a disability had equal rights.

■That society has a facilitating role to play in assisting people with a disability to exercise their rights.

■That people with a disability should have choice in how they access support.

■That inclusion should be actively pursued through the removal of obstacles to employment.


I think i can add one more to this list...Accessibility to everything from footpaths to recreation areas and nature parks, bbq's etc ....or aren't we allowed to use these facilities.II

DO AUSTRALIANS KNOW WHAT THIS SYMBOL
MEANS
OR ARE WE JUST PLAIN MEAN

WEE WEE GAMES--THERE COULD A LOT OF HIT AND MISS!--One could get pissed off!!


Toilet gaming technology

targets urinal boredom

There is not much choice: stare blankly at the wall tiles, focus on shoes with face set in a grimace, or maybe whistle.
When men use a public urinal they are cruelly left in full view, with nothing to do as they answer nature's call.
Until now.
British company Captive Media thinks it has developed a product that fills a gap in the market - a urinal mounted, urine-controlled games console for men.

It calls it the first "hands-free" video gaming console of its kind.
The sturdy device sits above the normal oval ceramic urinal bowl, opening up a whole new world of entertainment.
The user is presented with three generous targets to aim for in the urinal: stickers in the unit that read "Start", "Left" and "Right".
The console is able to detect where the urine is falling by means of an infra-red device.
And so a rudimentary "joystick" is set up.
Leader boardBog Standard
Games on offer include a skiing challenge, and a multiple choice pub quiz.
Once they have finished their business, customers can use their mobile phones to post their scores to Twitter and a live leader board.

MORTIFIED OR TERRIFIED--ABOTT WASHES HANDS--NO SLIPPER NEEDED!

Peter Slipper's 'squalid' rise to backfire
or
 Very Clever Politics!

PETER Slipper's rise to parliamentary Speaker was a squalid manoeuvre which voters will punish, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says.
Abbott has a short memory!
"The Australian people do not like the sort of kind of sordid, squalid, toxic deals that they saw in the parliament this week," Mr Abbott told the NSW Liberal Party State Council. 

"What happened in the parliament this week makes it all the more certain we will win."He hopes!

He said Mr Slipper's elevation to Speaker was designed to shore up Prime Minister Julia Gillard's job.

He failed to say that he was trying to get Oakshot to take the job to shore up his own position.

Mr Slipper becoming Speaker would cost the Coalition a vote in the House of Representatives
"Yes, for a little while we have lost a vote in the parliament," he continued. "But we have not lost our integrity."He said tongue in cheek.

He then made a Pontius Pilate statement The Mr Slipper problem is no longer our problem, it's a problem which is henceforth in the governments hands.
Tony you can't wash hands clean on this one mate, he was your mate a while ago! 

He didn't mention that the Coalition had nominated the same Mr Slipper for the Speakership against Mr Jenkins not so long ago.
If Slipper was such a dastardly figure, why nominate him then, what has changed, Abbott didn't get government that's whats changed, he was out maneuvered by Julia Gillard and has never got over it!

Abbotts arrogance during the negotiations with the Independents has cost him government and now has cost him a very valuable extra vote.

Members of his party must be wondering if he is worthy of leadership, already voters do not consider him to be Prime Minister material.

NO POLICE AVAILABLE---RUBBISH!!!


WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE
 THIS IS HOW TO CAL THE POLICE.

Phillip Hewitson, an elderly man, from Norwich UK, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.

 George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"
He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.
 
Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."
George said, "Okay."He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again.
"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed.

Well you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, Six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Hewitson`s' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to Phillip, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

Phillip said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
(True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people

AUSTRALIA...CAN WE LEARN FROM THE NETHERLANDS GAME SHOW.


Game show in The Netherlands 'pits asylum seekers against each other’

A game show in The Netherlands supposedly pits failed asylum seekers against each other to win cash to spend after being deported back to their home country.


In the show called "Leaving the Netherlands" or "Mad About the Netherlands", contestants are flanked by women dressed as air hostesses as they answer questions about Dutch culture, language and history.
The would-be immigrant who has learnt the most about the Netherlands during his stay wins £3,500 to spend after deportation.
The losers win 'consolation prizes’ which include a bag of tulips bulbs and a bullet proof vest.
Among the contestants on Thursday’s pilot show on the VPRO channel is an aeronautical engineer set to be deported to Cameroon and a Slavic languages student who will be sent home to Chechnya. 

“The candidates are not actors, they are genuine unsuccessful asylum seekers who have to leave this country within a month or two.
“The show focuses attention on the fact that these days many asylum seekers being expelled have children who know nothing about their country of origin.
“They have had a good education, speak perfect Dutch and have only seen their country of birth on television. We believe it’s time to stop and think about this.”
Dutch television channels have a history of using spoof game shows to highlight serious issues, such as the 2007 'win a kidney' reality television show.
Perhaps in Australia we could award the winner membership of one of the political parties.
Membership of the Liberal party---a trip to Nauru
Membership of the Labor party----a trip to Malaya
Membership of the Greens---------a trip to the Gold Coast
Membership of the Nationals------unpaid work in the bush
"A Game show, The price is right at only $3500"!!!!!!!!

ODESSA, Ukraine, Nov. 19 (UPI)

"Star Wars" villain Darth Vader paid a visit to the Municipal Council of Odessa in Ukraine to ask for a plot of land.

The council said the man, who was dressed as a Sith lord, presented a Ukrainian passport and filled out an application, which was accepted by the office., Pravda.ru reported Friday.

"I am Darth Vader, the right hand of Emperor Palpatine. I've learned that the municipal administration of Odessa was giving away land, so I came to ask for my plot.

"I know that the deputies of the council, the executive committee and Mayor Kostuev are on the dark side of Power, so they will help me."

The individual was dressed as the movie villain said one councillor.

The Land Code of Ukraine states residents can ask for a plot of land to be used for farm business, gardening, a garage or a country house.

Mr Vader did not divulge to what uses the land be put.

OVER 100years old..AND STILL GOING STRONG...THERE'S HOPE FOR US ALL!!



100-year-old finishes marathon
Monday, 17 October 2011


A 100-year-old Briton has become the world's oldest marathon runner after finishing a race in Canada.


Fauja Singh, from Ilford, east London, ran the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in eight hours, 25 minutes and 16 seconds.


The record-holder "hit the wall" at 22 miles but soldiered on for another two hours and finished in 3,850th place, ahead of five other competitors.


Mr Singh, who took up running 11 years ago after his wife and son died, trains every day by running 10 miles.
His coach and translator Harmander Singh said Mr Singh was "overjoyed".
"Earlier, just before we came around the (final) corner, he said, 'achieving this will be like getting married again'.
We are not quite sure why he likened it to marriage, did he mean it was arduous or pleasurable.
"He's absolutely overjoyed, he's achieved his lifelong wish."
Born in India in 1911, Mr Singh was a farmer in the Punjab but moved to Britain in the 1960s.
He puts his stamina down to ginger curry, tea and "being happy".
He holds the world record for the over-90 category after running the 2003 Toronto marathon in five hours and 40 minutes. His latest feat earns him another spot in Guinness World Records.
On Thursday he broke another eight records for 100-year-old men by completing all eight distances ranging from 100m to 5,000m.
Mr Singh said: "The secret to a long and healthy life is to be stress-free. Be grateful for everything you have, stay away from people who are negative, stay smiling and laughing and just  keep on running."

CRAZY AUSTRALIAN MEDICAL BUREAUCRACY--AND GREED!!!

 Australia relies on overseas medicos, but does everything to make it hard for them.


SUSAN Douglas' expertise as a doctor and obstetrician is indisputable.

As an assistant professor of family medicine and head of Canada's largest obstetrics department, she had no trouble securing a lecturing job at the ANU's medical school in 2006.

However while she is qualified enough to teach Australia's next generation of doctors, she can't get full registration to practice medicine here herself.

Dr Douglas is one of hundreds of overseas-trained doctors - encouraged by the government to come to Australia to ease critical gaps in the health care system - who are stymied from practising medicine when they arrive.

Psychiatrist Anthony Llewellyn, the medical manager of a regional health district, says the registration maze is ''bordering on what I see as criminal in its inefficiency''. German anaesthetist Ariane Kersting describes it as ''madness''.

WITCH DOCTOR IS WHICH DOCTOR???

''In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done! (Maggie Thatcher) ask a woman.''


Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, could well ponder that line as she heads into the final parliamentary week of the year.

In the past few weeks

  • She has managed to get the carbon tax passed.

  • Promised pay increases for low-paid workers.

  • Used Qantas's industrial woes to skewer the opposition.

  • Basked in the attention of the US President, Barack Obama.

  • This week, the government is confident it will get support for its mining tax, which will pay for increases in compulsory superannuation contributions.


Leadership talk has died down and no Parliament for the next 2½ months means Gillard's job is safe for the immediate future.

It's enough to make a prime minister think she might be able to enjoy a glass or two of wine and even get some time to relax over summer, with a couple of crime novels.
HAVE A RELAX, NOT A RELAPSE!

LAZINESS or LUXURY IN the land of the free...IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT!


The luxury beach condo where you can DRIVE to your 36th floor apartment

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 3:12 PM on 19th November 2011

Finding a parking space near their front door will no longer be a worry for anyone lucky enough to live in the new multimillion pound, 57-storey condo planned for Miami. 
Instead they can just pull into a designated space, turn off the engine and sit back and enjoy the oceanfront view as they are escalated in a glass elevator to the front door of their apartment.
The 'Jetson-esque' luxury tower will rise in Sunny Isles Beach as part of a $560million project between Germany's Porsche Design Group and a local developer, Gil Dezer.

Jetson-esque: The luxury tower will be built in Miami in a $560million project between Germany's Porsche Design Group and a local developer
It is the world’s first condominium complex with elevators that will take residents directly to their units while they are sitting in their cars. 
'You don’t have to leave your car until you are in front of your apartment,' Juergen Gessler, CEO of Porsche Design Group, told the Miami Herald. 
After the resident pulls over and switches off the engine, a robotic arm that works like an automatic plank will scoop up the car and put it into the elevator, you hope!. 
Once at the desired floor, the same robotic arm will hopefully park the car, leaving the resident in front of their front door or SOMEONE'S!
