In which BBC Radio 4 re-divides Jerusalem "IndyWatch Feed National"

Listeners to BBC Radio 4s Today programme on December 15th heard the following (from 05:06 here) in a news bulletin presented by Alan Smith. [emphasis in italics in the original, emphasis in bold added]

Smith: Australia says it now recognises West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel but it wont be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv at this stage. The prime minister Scott Morrison has also acknowledged the aspirations of Palestinians for a future state with its capital in East Jerusalem. The divided city, where the Israeli parliament is located, is not internationally recognised as the countrys capital. Phil Mercer reports from Sydney.

Apparently BBC Radio 4 along with the BBCs correspondent in Sydney is so used to using the politically partisan term East Jerusalem that it has forgotten that although Jerusalem was indeed divided during the nineteen-year period of the unrecognised Jordanian occupation that began in 1948, it was ...

Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW 2018-2023 Western NSW & Far West Health Libraries Blog

 

The   Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW 2018-2023  was developed by the NSW Mental Health Commission and the NSW Ministry of Health in collaboration with people with lived experience of suicide attempts or losing a loved one to suicide, government agencies, mental health organisations and experts in suicide prevention.  

 

The Framework identifies five priority action areas to reduce suicide in NSW:

  • Building individual and community resilience and wellbeing 
    To help people cope with tough times 
  • Strengthening the community response to suicide and suicidal behaviour
    To help people recognise those who are at risk of suicide, and take steps to support them
  • Supporting excellence in clinical services and care 
    To ensure people have access to appropriate, high quality clinical services and care, including broader supports and services 
  • Promoting a collaborative, coordinated and integrated approach 
    To reduce duplication and gaps
  • Innovating for a stronger evidence base 
    To know and use interventions that work to prevent suicide.

Hundreds protest ALPs support for fossil fuel industry "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

A coalition of environment, unions and faith groups protested outside the Labor Partys national conference in Adelaide on Sunday, calling for the party to stop the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.

On the plus side, EDO NSW has endorsed the partys commitment to create a national Environment Protection Authority.

Protesters demanded a stop to oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight, preventing Adani and other coal mines in Queenslands Galilee Basin and an end to fracking and gas exploration, in the Northern Territory, Western Australias stunning Kimberley and the Pilliga Forest in NSW.

The Wilderness Societys South Australia director, Peter Owen, said it was, insane Australia is opening up new oil, gas and coal frontiers when we know we need to stop burning fossil fuels.

Height of irresponsibility

Expanding the fossil fuel industry is the height of irresponsibility and not an option if we are to have any chance of providing our children with a liveable climate

Its also concerning that many of these fossil fuel frontiers are in pristine areas such as the Great Australian Bight, Western Australias stunning Kimberley and NSWs biggest inland forest, the Pilliga. The Great Australian Bight whale nursery is a completely inappropriate place for risky deep-sea oil drilling, especially as we hurtle towards catastrophic climate change.

We now know we must act immediately to avoid locking in catastrophic climate change. Allowing the fossil fuel industry to expand would negate Labors good work in promoting renewable energy. Its time for the Labor Party to show national leadership and commit to stopping the expansion of the fossil fuel industry when it sets its election platform at this national conference.

Philippa Rowland, president of Multifaith SA, said, people of faith in Australia feel the urgent need for an ethical response to threats posed to vulnerable communities from escalating climate impacts across our region all climate policies must include a rapid transition away from fossil fuels.

Parents at their wits end trying to stop sons gaming "IndyWatch Feed National"

For parents enduring daily fights with their sons about video games, the chilling video of Western Sydney man Luke Munday allegedly hitting his partner as she begged him to stop playing Fortnite was a manifestation of their worst fears this week.

Violent and aggressive reactions in children as young as eight when they are asked to stop playing are not uncommon, said Game Quitters founder Cam Adair.

Addiction to video games is forcing thousands of people into rehab clinics.
Addiction to video games is forcing thousands of people into rehab clinics.

Its unfortunately not uncommon, violence and aggression are quite frequent reactions of people who are made to stop, he said from the Chang Mai outpost of Sydney addiction centre The Cabin.

We speak to a lot of parents who are at their wits ends, they dont know how to make their sons stop.

Mr Adair estimates that there are 10 to 50 million gaming addicts across the globe, with that number set to rise.

The volume of people seeking help is double or triple what it was a year ago, and I think itll keep going up. Australia is a really significant market for gaming companies, and thus fertile ground for a video game addiction. Lots of people are suffering.

Beginning in childhood, an addiction to video games can have devastating consequences.

Last month, Sydney man Daniel Chapman, 22, was convicted of fatally stabbing his father Steven Chapman with a 14cm blade when the pair began arguing about Daniels refusal to stop playing computer games and come to the dinner table in October 2016.

Australian bettongs and fungi "IndyWatch Feed National"

This video from Australia says about itself:

Endangered northern bettong crucial to the survival of Queenslands tropical ecosystem

6/12/2018 The five-year WWF-Australia-funded project which tracked the northern bettong found there had been a 70 per cent decline in the marsupials population in the past 30 years.

Endangered northern bettongs arent picky truffle eaters

The marsupials varied diet could help safeguard some of Australias fungi and forests

A small endangered marsupial with a taste for truffles may be a linchpin in one kind of Australian forest and the evidence is in the animals poop.

Northern bettongs feast on truffles, the meaty, spore-producing parts of certain fungi. Plenty of animals eat a selection of these subterranean orbs from time to time. But analyses of the scat from northern bettongs (Bettongia tropica) reveal that the marsupials eat truffles from a wider diversity of fungi species than other critters, including some that no other animals appear to favor, researchers report November 22 in Molecular Ecology.

Thats an important role because these truffle-producing fungi form beneficial relationships with tree roots, helping trees pull nutrients and moisture from soil. Theres been a whole raft of published studies showing that those fungi give plants an edge, says Andrew Claridge, an ecologist for the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service in Queanbeyan who wasnt part of the study.

Australias eucalyptus forests host hundreds, or possibly even thousands, of truffle fungi species, says study coauthor Susan Nuske, an ecologist at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Ume. Different species seem to be specialized to associate with particular trees or perform certain roles, so maintaining that diversity is key. By spreading truffles spores via scat, bettongs help keep the fungal community diverse and, by extension, the forest healthy, say Nuske and her colleagues.
