Still no response from Oprah, starting to worry...


I read Vancouver has been again voted the most livable city. I wonder if anyone who has actually lived there gets a vote? :)

Having lived there for 18 months the harbour and back drop of the mountains is nice but I found the place to quiet for my liking and I have never felt so cold and wet in my whole life.

I always remember Vancouver for its panhandlers , sadly most are young men in their 20's to 30's. From memory at the time I was there the city had one or 2 on each corner.

Most people ignore them and never give them money,  I was the same until one came up to me and said please man can i have some money to "score some weed".

I stopped for a second and searched in my pocket and handed him 5 or 10 dollars I cant remember now. I said mate I have heard every excuse for money, from bus fare to food etc but your the first one to actually tell me the truth so here you go.      emthup   
 :)


OK I am off to HK tomorrow morning for a few days attending a colleague's graduation on the weekend     emthup     will try and run the place system for today and the weekend if i can find enough stats.

I feel like I have put on 3 kilos in 3 days in Hong Kong.

Always eat too much and drink too much, I need to ban myself from spicy hot pots. I just keep eating and drinking too crazy 4 hour sitting.. :embarrassed:

If you think Australian real estate is over priced take a trip to HK, I bought a property with my brother-inlaw 7 odd years ago and I nearly fell of my chair when a friend offered to buy it on the weekend.

There is no bigger supporter of the Chinese story than me (Chinese money is behind the demand in HK) but you have to feel this sort of inflated property prices cant keep going on forever.

For those interested the Chinese government attempts to cool their realestate market appear to be working at least for now. Many people I know are holding off purchases until the new year.

The demand is still there they are just waiting to see what the government will do next. Price rises have slowed, you can no longer buy a unit one day and sell it for a nice profit next week. :(

When I flew back into oz I read about Rudd's China comments, I thought for a second well done Julia for stabbing Rudd in the back, I then remembered Gillard had appointed him foreign minister.  :embarrassed: :chair: :chair:

http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/politics/doing-nothing-on-climate-is-a-fools-wager-20101206-18msy.html




Doing nothing on climate is a fool's wager Barry Jones
December 7, 2010
 
With nothing to lose and much to gain, action is in the national interest.

CLIMATE change as a political issue has probably had a greater effect in Australia than any other nation. In 2007, when Kevin Rudd campaigned on climate change as ''the greatest moral issue of our time'', it was a major factor in defeating the Howard government and sweeping the ALP into office.

Last December, the Copenhagen climate change conference failed to secure international agreement for binding targets for greenhouse gas reductions and was beset by controversy about the validity of projections by climatologists.

Advertisement: Story continues below Australia retreated from its aspiration to be seen as an international leader and exemplary model in setting greenhouse goals, and Labor made the inexplicable blunder of failing to involve the community in education and advocacy, despite opinion polls indicating that more than 60 per cent of voters favoured setting a carbon price and acting decisively on climate change.

In the 2010 federal election, climate change was barely mentioned as an issue and Prime Minister Julia Gillard's proposal to establish a ''citizens' assembly'' of 150 to promote public engagement in climate change attracted much derision.

Climate change was central in reducing Labor's primary vote to 38 per cent, increasing the Greens vote to 11.7 per cent, and may have contributed to the high informal vote.

Labor's vote fell sharply in the mining states of Queensland and Western Australia, increased in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. The ALP maintained a majority of seats in New South Wales despite growing distaste for the state Labor government.

Australia refuses to face a ''post-carbon'' future. The moral implications have been marginalised. National Times columnist Elizabeth Farrelly's coinages ''climate morality'' and ''carbon ethics'' are timely and appropriate, but they are not in the political lexicon.

After the 2010 election produced a hung parliament, Gillard negotiated a deal with the Greens and independents that put climate change back on the agenda. The concept of Australia ''going it alone'' to set a moral example and secure a stronger bargaining position in international negotiations had become a sour joke. We were trailing far behind.

Despite Barack Obama's problems with his Senate, he grasped the issues and some states, notably California, had taken leadership roles. China, potentially facing the greatest risk from climate change of any major state, seemed to be taking practical action. Britain and New Zealand have both adopted carbon prices.

In Australia, the opposition is strongly opposed to setting a carbon price and the Gillard government is hesitant. It is probably too late for Australia to act unilaterally - and courageously - on greenhouse targets. We may be able to regain some moral authority if we propose higher targets, developing new scientific programs for alternatives to fossil fuels and work constructively with the United States, European Union, China, India and Indonesia.

I have proposed my own variant of ''Pascal's wager'' to examine the options for climate change:

■If we take action on climate change and disaster is averted, there will be massive avoidance of human suffering.

■If we take action and the climate change problem abates for other reasons, little is lost and we benefit from a cleaner environment.

■If we fail to act and disaster results, then massive suffering will have been aggravated by stupidity.

■If we do not take action and there is no disaster, the outcome will be due to luck alone, like an idiot winning the lottery.

Failure to act appears to favour the present but it certainly prejudices the future. As the French diplomat Talleyrand acutely observed 200 years ago, ''Not to choose is to choose''.

Political failure on climate change in Australia has had three direct consequences: inaction on the issue, political mayhem, and the sacrifice of international influence.

Crisis-driven policy is a consequence of inaction, which in turn heightens the risk both of environmental disaster and political upheaval. Public involvement in the climate change debate is critical and must be genuine. But there are limits to consensus and, ultimately, decisions will need to be made based on what needs to be done. Leadership matters and political will is required if outcomes are to be changed.

The electorate appears to want, or is at least prepared to tolerate, action even if tough. Policy and the debate that surrounds policy development needs to be informed and critical: opinion must be distinguished from fact, arguments must be supported, and not all opinions carry equal weight in the absence of such support.

A solution will need to be found to the ''two cultures'' approach that separates scientists and economists: the environment and the economy are interdependent. Ultimately, Australia can and should choose to set a moral example and work towards a new economic base. Moreover, as the new version of Pascal's wager suggests, action is the low-risk road with the prospect of highest reward. It is in the national interest to take it.

Sorry I wasn't very clear.

I always treat place and win bets as 2 seperate systems.


Rather than combining the results.


$7 for win returning $11.50 =11.50/7= 1.64 opps not 1.67  :shy:

And

$7 place returned $8.50=8.5/7=1.21 at least I got that right!


Total 20/14= 1.42

Thought for the day,

Do climate change deniers ever realise the way they totally and continually contradict themselves?
