I have been thinking about trying out some place systems so thought this is the best place to do it.. I might also throw in some JWH life comments as I go along.


So it begins,

You need to get a life and stop making excuses for being addicted to this forum mate  :p

But in all honesty, are you seriously having trouble ?

What phone, what browser ?

Seriously people who post twits all day must have no life.


Now that has been confirmed I will continue.


I was laying in bed last night when I came to the conclusion that life as a conservative must be so much more interesting.


The garbage man forgot to empty my bin last week, so I left it out on the street in case he came back. (boring!!!!!!!!!!) :sleep:

Now if I was a conservative my first thought would of been, bloody idiot overpaid and can't even get their job done.

Then as they get into their car to drive to work, the conspiracy mind would start to kick in..

"Bloody council they must be getting me back for being 2 days late on last month's rates"

Then at morning tea,

"I bet Gillard is targeting me for voting for Tony last election"

After lunch  

"That's right I saw Rudd talking to Clinton on the news, I bet they're mentioning my opposition to global warming and discussing how to silence me"

The conservative arrives home after work, and finds the bin empty,

A broad smile spreads across the conservatives face, safe in the knowledge that Clinton Rudd and Gillard had cowed away from confronting him head on.


When I get home, I too smile to see an empty bin, but only for the reason that it gives the wife one less thing to whinge about this week. :( :(

Numbers have been a big part of my life since a child even today I make my living from them.
Today was the 11th of the 11th and i posted my 1111 post today. I can't believe I didn't notice this until now. :(

I wonder if this would work if used about 15 nminutes before the first at Randwick.


Shock gives an awe for numbers Deborah Smith
November 8, 2010
 
NEVER had a way with numbers? Help could soon be at hand.

Researchers have discovered it is possible to boost people's maths ability by applying an electrical current to a specific part of the brain.

Cohen Kadosh, a neuroscientist at Oxford University, said his team's approach would not turn people into Einsteins. ''And we are not advising people to go around giving themselves electrical shocks, but we are extremely excited by the potential of our findings.''

Advertisement: Story continues below The team also showed that a reverse form of the stimulation made people perform poorly on tests, equivalent to a six-year-old.

About one in 20 people struggle with a basic understanding of numbers, the researchers said.

An even larger group, about 15 to 20 per cent of people, have difficulties that significantly hinder their educational and employment opportunities, and pose obstacles in everyday life. Others lose numerical ability as a result of strokes or degenerative conditions.

Being good or bad with numbers has previously been linked to a part of the brain known as the parietal lobe.

For the study, published in the journal Current Biology, the researchers taught young volunteers nine made-up symbols that represented different numerical values, and applied a weak electrical current during the six daily learning sessions.

Participants were then tested to see how quickly and accurately they could complete a series of standard mathematical tests based on the artificial symbols, including putting them in the right position on a number line.

Those who were stimulated from the right to the left across the parietal lobe performed well after a few learning sessions.

Those who were stimulated the other way, from the left to the right, did poorly, scoring like year 1 students.

Those who were not stimulated fell in between the two other groups.

Tests carried out six months later showed the high performers had maintained their new abilities, and other tests showed the electrical stimulation affected only the learning of the symbols, and did not alter other mental functions.

They pointed out the technique helped only with newly learnt, rather than existing, mathematical knowledge.

Future research will examine the underlying brain changes from the electrical stimulation.

Ok its true private mobile speed cams and guess which bank gets the money?? emthdown


NSW mobile speed cameras expected to double current revenue
By Brett Davis  |  July 12th, 2010           

As some of us may be already aware through various television ads and digital sign post updates, the NSW Government is releasing six new mobile speed cameras on July 19. The white Ford Territorys will be placed in common traffic hot spots with no prior signposted warnings, although their locations are said to be updated on the RTA’s website.

The new cameras will operate day and night and in all weather conditions thanks to infrared detection and photography equipment. The Territorys will be marked with a sign on the side saying ‘safety speed check’ and they’ll be able to detect up to six cars at once and issue fines accordingly. The cameras are said to only issue warnings during the first month of operation.

The latest budget has revealed how much money the government is actually planning on making out of a revised safety campaign, which includes mobile cameras and increased fines – the NSW state government appears to be just as interested in the profit numbers as the reduced death toll numbers.

The figures released in the state’s budget expect revenue from traffic fines to be almost doubled in the years to come, from $295 million (2008-2009) to $570 million (2011-12), with the help of these new mobile cameras.

Now, the debate about whether or not these things actually reduce the road toll is one that will go on for many years, but it seems so blatantly obvious these days it’s almost at the point where speed camera revenue is actually available on the stock market, and anyone can invest as the price of safety literally rises and rises. How would you feel if the guys partly behind the entire speed camera operation were in fact a bank. Don’t be so surprised.

Now hoping to help reduce the death toll is the long-time road safety advocate and driver training institution, ‘the millionaires’ factory’, also known as the Macquarie Bank. It’s prepared to invest 275 million of its loving, sympathy-coated dollars into the operation… just to show how much it cares.



The government currently contracts Redflex (partly owned by Macquarie Bank – 10 percent) for the speed camera business, but the Macquarie Bank has seen this new operation as more than just a safety campaign, it’s a prospective business opportunity and is hoping to purchase the entire contract off Redflex in the near future.

The immediate question is, why is the government allowing such a monopoly of a large-scale safety concern to occur, shouldn’t the money go back into the RTA and NSW police, not into a profiting institution primarily established to make money?

Interesting article,

China will overtake US by 2020 Shamim Adam, Singapore
November 16, 2010
 
CHINA will overtake the US to become the world's largest economy by 2020, according to Standard Chartered.

''We believe that the world is in a super-cycle of sustained high growth,''    emthup   emthup  economists led by Gerard Lyons said in a report published yesterday. ''The scale of change over the next 20 years will be enormous.''

China's economy will be twice as large as the US's by 2030 and account for 24 per cent of global output, up from 9 per cent today, Mr Lyons said.

India will surpass Japan to be the third-largest economy in the next decade, according to the report. Goldman Sachs Group estimates China will overtake the US by 2027.

The world may be experiencing its third ''super-cycle'', which is defined as ''a period of historically high global growth, lasting a generation or more, driven by increasing trade, high rates of investment, urbanisation and technological innovation, characterised by the emergence of large, new economies, first seen in high catch-up growth rates across the emerging world''.

Output in China, the largest maker of mobile phones, computers and vehicles, surpassed Japan for the second straight quarter in the three months to the end of September, Japan's government said yesterday.

The Chinese economy overtook Britain as the fourth-largest in 2005 and tipped Germany from third place in 2007.

Previous growth super-cycles were characterised by stable currencies where there were exchange rates linked to gold or silver, monetary unions and the Bretton Woods agreement, Standard Chartered said.

Current concerns over ''currency wars'' highlight the challenges with the present system, the bank said.

''The possibility of some formal move towards currency stability at a global level cannot be ruled out,'' according to the report. ''However, in the present context, it seems hard to predict. Greater currency intervention may be plausible, and over time, one should expect to see more countries managing their currencies against a basket of currencies of the countries with which they trade. Managed floats and currency baskets may become more of a norm for currency policy.''

About 2 months back my 8 year old son comes home from school and tells me he wants to join the school band. As a parent I thought great learning an instrument is always good.   emthup

So I naturally asked what do you want to learn, he replies drums/percussion. OK ...not my first choice, but I assumed he would get sick of them pretty soon so I could put up with the "short term" banging.

Anyway  about 2 weeks later we get called into the band leaders office and told our son has a gift, he's never seen anyone pick up drums so easily and is amazed at his ability to read music so quickly!  As a consequence he has been promoted to the concert band. Naturally this produces smiles all round, what I didn't pay much attention too at the time, was that he also required  "special" additional lessons to nurture his "gift"

Turns out the special lessons cost 5 times as much as his original lessons, not too happy on the receipt of the first bill, but as all parents know we would do anything for our kids.  emthup


The problem now is the little bugger no longer practises, everytime I remind him he says no need dad I have a gift  :lol:
