Facebook unrepentant as Prime Minister dubs emergency services block 'arrogant'



Facebook is in a stoush with the federal government over a law saying they have to pay for links to news media (Rupert Murdoch seems to be behind the law). So they blocked all news site pages and any links to news articles that anyone posts. That includes foreign newspapers. For a while they were blocking all the satirical news sites like the Chaser and the Betoota Advocate. Apparently they, and emergency services sites are slowly coming back. FB says blocking the emergency sites was inadvertent, but I think it was a way to get attention.

Google is in the same situation and it will be a pain if you can't search for sites and have to go back to guessing urls. The whole federal policy doesn't look very thought out but other countries are looking closely to see if they can try to squeeze the internet giants, too.

I mean, I do use facebook friends to curate news for me but I suppose this will make it faster to catch up on what friends around the world are doing.

Snorkeling it up doesn't seem like it would be very effective or efficient. I think it's mostly buckets on helicopters here, although we had a fire where they brought in some Bombardier planes that scoop the water up on the fly and those things were cool.

  Perth city went into 5 days lockdown after a SOLITARY case of C19 appeared, the first in over 10 months and shutting down a city of 2 million. Expecting the all clear as of 18.00 hrs today.
I have escaped  any restrictions as we live on the edge of the city, business as usual but we are being threatened by the mega blaze burning just 20kms to the south of us.
To complicate matters there is a decaying tropical low weather system bearing down on us. It's expected to hit the fire zone midday tomorrow, but the already screaming winds are going to intensify prior to the change with 40 plus mm of rain. Probably enough to snuff the fire out hopefully .

Incidentally  just recently had a very special release Fremantle made beer, twas truly superb but at $17  a can I won't be racing out for another six pack too soon.

Perth Currently Receiving Condensed Version Of Last Year

“Right now, we’re just having a really condensed version of what people over East had last year. Disease and destruction. While we last lay on the beach and got a tan. We’ve been allowed to drink in public, we’ve been allowed to shake our can on pub dancefloors around the state. We’ve taken that for granted,”

“But don’t worry. Come Monday, this old boy from the Hunter will be shaking his ass again. Not with the young folks down in Fremantle, I’ll leave that to Troy Buswell. I’ll probably keep it low key, nursing a $28 pint of Little Creatures in some yuppie fuckhole near the river,”

Imagine if he'd lost a chocolate bar!



The court heard that on Monday night Mr Wittmann allegedly went to the Lost Dogs' Home where his cat was being held, after being told he could pick it up the following day.
Detective Senior Constable Jo MacDonald told the magistrate Mr Wittmann, who served in the Australian Army before being discharged for failing to render efficient service, was dressed in military-style clothing and was armed with an assault rifle.

"On this occasion, he's acted to get back possession of a cat, which he was only going to be without for possibly 10 hours," she told the court.

The father of three is accused of pointing the rifle at a young ranger in the shelter's car park, who later described the gun as "something a SWAT team in the movies would use".







How do you go from "being discharged for failing to render efficient service" to storming an animal shelter commando style?  I guess it never occurred to this genius that he won't be able to see Puss or his kids in prison. (Kids undoubtedly are rejoicing...)



 
Really, what would you do for one? 

Well it is Australia so the sentence probably won't be as long as it would be in USA.

And it is sad that there probably are untreated mental health issues.

The question is whether they are interbred with feral dogs. I'm not sure if the alpine dingos are a distinct subspecies or if they are just purebreds in that area. Sure look different from the normal dingos I've seen. It's an issue because the locals kill wild dogs and I'm not sure if they are allowed to kill dingos or not. It's a hot-button issue that gets into whether they are indigenous or were brought over by people in the last 10,000 years or so. I think they are native wildlife in either case. One of the claims is that a dingo population keeps the wild dogs out and overall they kill less cattle. I don't know enough to say.

You need a special permit to keep a tame dingo but you don't for a dingo-cross. Met a guy in town with a "dingo-cross" that sure didn't look or act like a pet dog. He about admitted as much.

eta: and they are a lot rarer than cyotes in any case.

"Australien government"? Does that misspelling have a certain meaning in Oz that 'Muricans couldn't appreciate? 

I do love the repeated use of "sh*tf+ckery"; reminds me of "Rake." We could use that term here.

Sounds like your government's corruption is a bit reminiscent of the one in Washington...
 
I think they are suggesting that the government is alien when seen from the indigenous perspective, but I'm not really sure. I try to watch my potty-mouth but I may have to start using shitfuckery. Rake was always on too late for me.

A reporter for Australia's Nine Network had a surprise when the python she was holding began biting her microphone.

Journalist Sarah Cawte was doing a piece to camera on snake safety, and was not hurt in the incident.



Get that microphone out of my face! The Reptile Paparatsi had it coming.
