Yes its very shameful. Good enough to fight and die for the country, just not good enough to have a drink with. All school children should learn the history of this country's treatment of indigenous with absolutely no cover up. A child recognises unjust and unfair treatment when they are exposed to it.

What a shame. They should be respected the same as anyone else for the brave people that they are and bearing in mind a lot were on the front line getting shot at first. Time these people were stood up for and thanked for what they have done.

So glad for the Veterans that they get to march today. The Indigenous men fought bravely and courageously just like their Indigenous cobbers The Maori Battlion across the ditch.

Hey Australian Government: if you've got a billion dollars to give away (to Adani), how about you give it to these people instead?

A few people on this thread are posting the old sceptical "it will be bought up and never happen" comment. Neither Infratech Industries – which is already a large and viable company with many other successful energy initiatives already in production — nor the University of Newcastle – is going to be "bought up" or "shelved." What Australians need to do is get behind these people and invest – and tell the government that this is the kind of energy we want, NOT COAL MINES.

what we as a secular country need to do, is expose the hypocrisy of religion through education, cease funding of any religious schools, and tax churches, teach ethics and morals for all.

this kind of crap is everywhere, if you are going to mention one, mention them all. I still remember being amused, horrified and pissed off when a primary school mate told me I was going to hell because I didn't go to church, and that I was born evil because of my gender. Bunch of hogwash.

The North Koreans are drawing ever closer to their desired state of reliable nuclear delivery to their adversaries ... we may have a window of opportunity of 2-4 years ... in that window, a resolution has to be achieved ... their incredible patriotism suggests North Korea may not take the time to consider the retaliatory consequences ...

No-one controls where they are born. We would probably be just the same if we had been Germans. Walk in their shoes, and generally be too terrified of Hitler and his mob to step out of line. Modern Germany is so different.
yesterday at 01:25
I've been teaching my students about the first Anzac involvement in WW1. Basically, it was to join with 5 other nations, and invade a nation on the other side of the planet from us, that we were not actually enemies with.
The Ottoman Empire forces defended their homeland.
That's how awful and futile war can be.

Dont wirry Minna. My Dad was in the British Army & my Mum was German. For many years I kept my mouth shut 'cause I realized half of my heritage was hated. I learnt to love history as it showed me the stupidity of war.

In the day and age when scientists are being funded by corporations to find the specific data they're looking for, we have conflict of interest science. Tell me who funds your lab and we'll be the judge if it remains credible. Science got bought out along with our politicians long ago.

Science is the new black. A smug, if well educated, looking herd, too. Crowds bother me, though. Should we all accept anything a scientist proposes? Of course. It's science.

Science has become the handmaiden of politics and industry ever since it whored itself to the market place. Without industry and politics, the institution of science would just be seen as another religion.

I relayed the story of Bell playing this as a busker in Washinton to someone. The sad thing was that they showed little interest till they knew how much the violin was WORTH. That was Joshua's point exactly for as he played in the street seemingly as a begger people rushed past him because they judged him as of little worth. Sad.

Also, if "President" Cameron is putting in writing things like "I have chosen my words carefully in this email can I ask you do not respond and after reading please delete the email", then he's the dumbest corrupt official in history.

Should mediation be an option in sexual abuse cases?

The power imbalance going into something like this is hugely skewed. You can't mediate with a sociopath that already knows the ins and outs of manipulation especially with intimate partner sexual abuse. As a survivor, I would prefer judicial scrutiny over mediation with the devil any day.
04/20/2017 at 05:37
I'm not sure how effective this would be, but I'd be interested in a study. My concern would be that victims could be groomed—before, during and after the abuse—and that there would be an ongoing risk to others.
04/20/2017 at 10:50
I doubt it would do much except further traumatise the victim.
