    Police prosecutors have dropped a charge against a soldier who caused panic after jogging through suburban Brisbane with a gun-shaped object last year. A full-scale police response was launched after 26-year-old Nicholas Paul Latham was spotted running through Rochedale South wearing camouflage clothing and carrying the object in December last year. Several schools were shut down and Mr Latham was eventually tackled by police. He told police it was all a misunderstanding as he was training with a metal object shaped like a gun, but was charged with public nuisance. His matter went before the Holland Park Magistrates Court on...

    A submission to a Senate inquiry into the feasibility of Government’s planned purchase of at least 72 F-35 Lightning II fighter jets says that the multirole planes will be instantly outmatched in air superiority by the airborne wings of competing countries in the region like China and Indonesia, and will fare even worse against future threats. It suggests — hypothetically — that Australia instead push for the F-22 Raptor, a jet that the United States has never sold to even its closest military allies. In the submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade’s Joint Strike...

    With Citi's chief economist proclaiming "only helicopter money can save the world now," and the Bank of England pre-empting paradropping money concerns, it appears that Australia's largest investment bank's forecast that money-drops were 12-18 months away was too conservative. While The Finns consider a "basic monthly income" for the entire population, Swiss residents are to vote on a countrywide referendum about a radical plan to pay every single adult a guaranteed income of around $2500 per month, with authorities insisting that people will still want to find a job.

The center-right government has promised to hold a plebiscite on the gay marriage question if the government is re-elected in a vote due this year. But a number of the government's most conservative lawmakers have recently announced that they might vote down gay marriage against the wishes of a majority of Australians. ...

    Nobody wants to take your guns. That's what most mainstream pro-gun control Democrats say ad nauseam at various rallies. There's also the "I support the Second Amendment, but…" that advocates of gun control say prior to offering some pie-in-the-sky policy proposals that usually venture into bans on so-called assault rifles, limiting magazine sizes, or an all-out ban on semi-automatic firearms. That's essentially a gun ban. Both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama have praised the Australian-model of gun control, which the National Rifle Association decided to explain at length in a recent video. It deals with gun buybacks, confiscation, and bans....

    War is Boring ^ | January 26, 2016 | Joseph Trevithick
    Australia’s former top weapons tester has warned of serious problems with the country’s $24 billion share of the F-35 stealth fighter program. The ex-official, Keith Joiner, issued the warnings in a Jan. 4 letter to the Australian Senate’s formal inquiry into the Joint Strike Fighter project. Joiner’s biggest criticisms involve the F-35’s repeated delays, lack of Australian input in the project and the fighter’s powerful computer brain. The retired official wrote that Canberra must either speak out about the stealth warplane’s problems or pull out of the project. He also favors delaying Australia’s commitment until developer Lockheed Martin and the...

Australia is expected to decide the winner of the Australian $50 billion ($34.55 billion) project, one of the world's most lucrative defense contracts, within the next six months, ahead of a national election in which the deal and the jobs it will create is expected to be a key issue for the conservative government.

It was the first time the species of snakes was seen in more than 15 years since disappearing from the Timor Sea, according to researchers at Australia's James Cook University who identified the snakes. The discovery of the Short Nose sea snake was confirmed after an Australia Parks and Wildlife officer sent a photo to researchers for identification, the university said.

The children went missing from a road in Bowraville over a five month period in 1990 and 1991.

    A contagious cancer, spread by biting, has decimated the population of Tasmanian devils since 1996. Researchers have now identified a second contagious cancer in eight devils, making them question how rare contagious cancer is, according to a new study. In addition to attempting to breed devils identified as immune to the disease, scientists started working on a vaccine against Devil Facial Tumor Disease earlier this year -- which they said will not be thrown off by the discovery of a second form of the cancer. The cancer, which researchers believe is spread by common biting behavior, causes tumors and lesions...

    Analysis of the oldest-known cemetery in the South Pacific may help resolve a longstanding debate over the origins and ancestry of Polynesians. Modern-day Polynesians bear strong cultural and linguistic similarities to the ancient people associated with the Lapita Culture who settled on Vanuatu more than 3,000 years ago. However, the origin of the Lapita people remains debated, with recent biological studies suggesting that the group may be of mixed ancestry with a strong contribution from Melanesian populations, who were already established on islands to the west near New Guinea. Frederique Valentin, Matthew Spriggs, and colleagues conducted morphological analyses involving craniometric...

    Actress Amber Heard has been charged with bringing two of her dogs into Australia without permission. These foreign terriers present a massive threat to Australia’s national identity. Amber is pleading not guilty, as she should, because it’s not her fault that Australia discriminates against refugee dogs. We should be asking Australia why they are rejecting these canine refugees. Australia is clearly a racist country, who don’t want unfamiliar brown dogs crossing their borders. They need to “get off their high horse,” like Obama says. Does Australia think their native-born dogs are better than foreign mutts?

    How the mighty have fallen. A soldier, in uniform, with a pack and a clearly fake gun causes an entire section of Australian civilization to go into the "vapors".Throughout most of the rest of the world, there would hardly be a comment. Seeing soldiers on exercises is common and only slightly noteworthy.Notice that this soldier did nothing that was even remotely threatening, except exist. He did not fire blanks. He never pointed the crude, welded metal sections, vaguely resembling a rifle, at anyone. We (in the United States) would be in the same place if it were not for...

    Although we foreigners can offer no immediate solution to America’s gun infestation, we can see how you lost control of the plague of armed violence. Outsiders are also perplexed to see that you’ve done so little to grant your citizens a basic human right — the freedom to live without fear of death by gunshot. Historically, there’s little mystery as to how it began. The early laws of each European empire relied on two pillars of gun safety: Firearm owners were obliged to apply for a license and then to register each firearm, just as we do with cars. Because...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ya9XjBuUZn4 At a recent rally for Donald Trump in South Carolina, the Republican frontrunner remarked that President Obama is thinking about signing an executive order for more gun control: "You know, the President is thinking about signing an executive order where he wants to take your guns away.

In an interview with Australia's ABC News, Fischer decried the prevalence of mass shootings in the United States, insisting that it's time to "call out" Washington. "All [the shootings are] unacceptable because the U.S. is not stepping up on the public policy reform front," said Fischer, who was a prominent campaigner for the gun law reforms enacted by Howard's government following a...

Her niece was named after the Egyptian goddess, and was born years before the creation of the Islamic State. Despite pleas to Ferrero Australia to please reconsider and print the label, the company stood...

According to New South Wales police in Australia, they received multiple calls about the sound of crashing furniture and a man screaming: “I’m going to kill you, you're dead! Die Die!!”.
