Australians Arriving to Hunt for Gold
2009-08-14 05:13:00
A common pastime for many Australians is to go gold fossicking. Increasingly however, Australian gold fields have been picked clean by the weekend prospector. With the rivers low before the spring snow thaw, I took the opportunity to brave the cold and scout a few new areas. In what I would call a very remote ...
Australians confirm new Coyote 5 liter V-8 for Falcon
2009-05-19 03:35:00
According to the Drive website http://www.drive.com.au/Editori-al/ArticleDetail.aspx?ArticleID-=62920, Ford of Australia has let it slip that they will start using the new 5 liter V-8 code-named Coyote sometime in 2010. Chances are that it will already be offered in the Mustang at that point, as shown in the near-production prototype pictures below (note the use of the 2010 Mustang GT air intake system). The Coyote is rumored to make 400 horses and 400 torque, although the technical specs are not at all clear. A DOHC design is obvious, and this prototype appears to use port fuel injection instead of the more desirable and more powerful (and cleaner) direct injection. Very clearly the engine does not use central direct injection. Twin sensors on each bank would suggest independently variable intake and exhaust cam timing. And 80 HP/liter is hardly state of the art - this engine is clearly focused on cleanliness rather than pure power. We should have an answer to th...

Taurus SHO vs. Falcon XR6T - Australians weigh in
2009-02-15 17:42:00
The current Australian Falcon has a long and beloved performance history, supports local preferences with a rear wheel drive (RWD) architecture, and all importantly - to the Australians - is home grown. The XR6T version (4 liter inline 6, with turbocharger) is the current high water mark of performance - even bettering the version of the same car equipped with the 5.4 liter DOHC V-8 (roughly similar to the SVT Cobra R 5.4 engine, although with some differences). The XR6T is an attractive and desirable car.... although somewhat dated by European standards. The current Falcon is a "top hat" update to the previous car, retaining a fairly old architecture and suspension. The new body shell and minor updates were conceived as a short-term and inexpensive fix, until a new RWD platform came to fruition around 2012 that would meet worldwide standards. The Falcon platform had been briefly considered for export but had too many technical issues for worl...

Australians Awake! Big Brother is Watching You
2008-04-16 15:14:00
From Crikey's Daily Email.This kind of stuff is very disturbing and more in tune with Bush's Department of Homeland Security than Australia, but apparently not. More amazing is that it is being spearheaded by Howardistas.The government is proposing a dramatic extension of snooping powers of employers as part of an ongoing co-option of the private sector into the national security state framework. In particular, the protection of "critical infrastructure" has allowed the development of a complex and highly-rewarding partnership between governments and the private sector.The private sector, across areas such as transport, communications, IT and energy, is a willing participant in the process of establishing a system for monitoring and protecting their facilities and the public infrastructure they use, all in the name of preventing or effectively responding to terrorism. After all, the process allows companies access to government funding for the maintenance and upgrading of monitori...

Don't Go Out with Australians
2008-03-11 23:19:00
Australians are crazy motherfuckers.Do not try to keep up with them. I did. I regret it. Last night we went to the horse races just outside London. I drank too much, of course, and started instructing everyone on how to pick a winner. When I say “everyone”, I mean Directors, VPs, and a President and CEO of my company. I decided the winning combination was this: The horse’s tail must be wispy, not limp. The more wispy the tail, the better. If you can somehow tie the horse’s name to Satan, you have a winner.This, of course, was bullshit. The kind of bullshit I spout with deadpan seriousness that everyone buys into. But the cherry on top was the fact that I kept winning every race. I picked the horse based on this bullshit criteria, and won time after time. The drunker I got, the more I won. The more ridiculous the pick, the bigger the winner. I don’t know how to explain it. It just was.Then, the Director of Finance for the U.K. came to me and asked me my ...

Cultural Learnings Of... Australians Saying Sorry
2008-02-12 23:32:00
Some of you may have actually seen Australia in the news the last few days and its not because someone famous died (oh I cried when Fatso the Wombat from A Country Practise passed on) or because of our crocodile wrestling prowess, it is because our country is about to do something it should have a long time ago, say "sorry" to the Aboriginal people.So whats the deal? Like many other indigenous peoples, the Native Americans or the Sami up north, our Aboriginal guys had a rich and deep culture and then some British dudes rocked up, steam rollered the place and displaced them good. There is one particularly bleak part of this history, around the 1960's when we had this nasty piece of legislation called the "White Australia Policy" (sounds good already right?) where any Aboriginal childen who were "half cast" or looked a bit whitey, were taken from their families, their land and their culture and placed with white adopted families and told to just "be...

DROUGHT TOLERANT PLANTING - LEARNING FROM THE AUSTRALIANS
2008-02-05 15:10:00
Monty Don's new Sunday night BBC programme 'Around the Garden in 80 Days' was focussed on the gardens of Australasia last week.What I found most interesting about the show was Di Johnson's Garden Vineyard (on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne) and the way that she was clipping and topiarising drought tolerant Australian natives into columns and domes - much as we do here with box and yew.Finding hardy drought and flood tolerant alternatives to our favourite garden plants is going to be more and more important as we continue to garden in the changing climate.Although Taxus (Yew) is pretty drought tolerant, it is famously averse to waterlogged soil and flooding which can easily kill off even established specimens.Buxus (Box) can cope with moist to dry conditions but will not survive a drought and the sheared leaves can scorch in hot weather. Add to this potential problems with box blight and there is going to be a real gap in the garden designers planting palette if an alt...

Australians all let us rejoice

It's AUSTRALIA DAY today so I won't consider it too garish to get a little patriotic say a big G'day to all of you! And if you were thinking that we are all putting that trite little shrimp on the barbie then think again, first of all we call them prawns down here and were most likely going to be putting snags or chops on the barbie. Yes, snags or chops. Sausages or steaks.You have to love the Aussie lexicon. It's baffling and nonsensical to the outsider; we love to attach silly terms to words that are in perfect working order and love to shorten everything, but if you are Australian it makes perfect sense. Like a cup of tea being a cuppa, chewing gum becomes chewie, breakfast being breakkie, and anyone called Darren, Karen and Lauren will indubitably be given the nickname Dazza, Kazza, and Lozza. I love being Australian.Another thing quintessentially Australian and proudly so, is the barbie- the barbeque. Now I'm pretty sure it wasn't the early settlers who thought up this wa...
Two Australians quizzed over Singapore plane alert
2008-01-24 09:16:00
SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Two Australians were being questioned by Singapore police after the small plane they were flying caused a temporary lockdown of city-state's commercial airspace on Tuesday evening, a local paper reported Thursday. The plane, a single-engine turboprop Cessna 208, flew into Singapore airspace from Thailand without permission and was intercepted by two Singapore air force fighter jets before landing at Changi Airport. The Straits Times reported that the plane was bought this month by an Australian woman who owned a travel company. The report did not identify the two people on board. The closure of commercial airspace affected 23 aircraft, disrupting flights in and out of Changi Airport. Another inbound aircraft was diverted to Senai Airport in neighbouring Malaysia.

Australians Pushing Brazilians on Preteens
2008-01-03 19:00:00
Things are getting kinda hairy Down Under. Parents are extremely ticked off because a website is promoting Brazilian waxes—for preteen girls. Girl.com.au, whose slogan is "Girl Power — Empowering Girls Worldwide," is a girl-centric website that usually covers things like Nancy Drew online games and PG movies. But along with this kid-friendly fare, there's a primer on Brazilian waxing that includes this gem: Nobody really likes hair in their private regions and it has a childlike appeal. Men love it, and are eternally curious about it. The article also tells girls what to expect during a wax, claiming that the procedure is "surprisingly not as painful as you might think." Now, even if this copy were showing up on a women's website, I'd have issues with its bizarre worldview. (Really, "nobody" likes hair down there? All men love the "childlike appeal"? Ugh.) But it's even worse to see this directed at children. Between this and Nair Pretty, it seems like our culture is sexuali...

Australians can now buy carbon-neutral car insurance

Australian drivers who want to clear their environmental conscience can buy "carbon neutral" car insurance from ibuyeco. When you get your insurance through the company an extra surcharge will be applied to your premium to buy carbon offsets equivalent to the output of the insured car for the term of the policy. The money will go to eco-friendly projects identified by Greening Australia. The insurance is offered by Australian Insurance Holdings and a similar program has been in place since June in England by BGL Group. BGL says the ibuyeco program has offset 20,000 kg of carbon dioxide emissions since the program launched.[Source: ibuyeco.com.au, via Drive.com.au]
Australians set beachside bikini record
2007-10-01 19:26:00
More than 1,000 Australian women donned free bikinis on Sydney's Bondi Beach on Wednesday for a group photograph to win a spot in the Guinness World Book of Records. "This was certainly one of the more spectacular world records that I've been invited to adjudicate on," said Chris Sheedy, a representative for Guinness World Records. "As an Australian myself, it's logical that any record involving sun, sand and surf should be held in this country." Bondi lifeguards turned their ocean-front headquarters into a dressing room to allow each woman to change into her bikini. The skimpy swimwear made its debut in 1946. Hoping it would be worn by beautiful "bombshells", the designers named it after Bikini Atoll, an atomic bomb test site in the Marshall Islands.Source: theage.com.au
