#China is behaving badly & #Australia won’t stand for it, minister says - We have ‘incredibly important’ trading relationship, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says, but influencing students, stealing intellectual property & hacking will not be accepted scmp.com/news/china/dip…
China is behaving in a way that is inconsistent with Australian values by targeting political parties and universities, a senior government minister said on Friday in comments that threaten to further inflame tensions between the two countries.
Australian lawmakers had sought to improve the relationship by refraining from public criticism of China in recent months, but Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton said Australia would not be silent despite the importance of their trading relationship.

#Beijing’s show of military might is a wake-up call for #Australia - Good descriptions of the new weapon systems 👍Excellent article👍 aspistrategist.org.au/beijings-show-…
The WZ-8 would act as high-speed eyes for long-range A2/AD systems such as the DF-17 or the DF-26 anti-ship missile. Pic of the WZ-8 👇👇👇
The WZ-8 could cover a large maritime region quickly, identify a target, and share that information with ‘shooters’ such as PLA Rocket Force ballistic missile units. Its high altitude, high speed and stealthy design would make it virtually impossible to intercept.

Do #HealthWarnings on #cigarette sticks dissuade #smokers and #NonSmokers? A focus group and interview study of #Australian university students.
@AaronDrovandi, Teague PA, Glass B, Malau-Aduli B.
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31191057
Being a former #smoker from #Australia I found it rather odd the researchers asking questions about #GraphicWarnings and their effect, of a group that included NON #smokers.
As time has gone by (not necessarily in this order):
- #Tobacco advertising was banned long ago.
- #Smoking bans put #smokers outside, where they were more obvious to people walking past the #SmokeFree buildings.
- #GraphicWarnings were included on cigarette packs.

#Ukraine call, AG Barr, US Atty Durham, #Spygate & #ItalianSpygate

1. This article is very important to me, because it gives us a glimpse on what's REALLY happening.

AG Wiliam Barr is actively supporting US Att. Durham probe:
(cont. >)

foxnews.com/politics/barr-…
>

2. Why did #POTUS45 ask #Ukraine President #Zelensky about #Biden's illicit activities?

For the same reason he asked #Australia's PM re: matter related to #Mueller probe:

BECAUSE AG BARR ASKED THE PRESIDENT TO DO THAT.

US officials can't go directly...
(cont.>)

#Spygate
>

3. ...to contact foreign authorities without an introduction by #POTUS.

Why did AG Barr do that?

Because he's supporting US Att. Durham's probe.

Hold on, it's wider than we think.

What is Durham investigating?

Missing Children’s Statistics
One Missing Child Is One Too Many

The lack of a common definition of “missing child,” and a common response to the issue, results in few reliable statistics on the scope of the problem around the world.
2) #missingchild #missingchildren
Even with this challenge, we know that:

In Australia, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.

Disappointed in the US #GreenParty🌻. Their counterparts in #Australia, #NewZealand, & #Germany recognize #China’s Communist Party as an enemy of #HumanRights & main contributor to #ClimateChange.

Then again, proponents of the #GreenNewDeal, like @TomSteyer, cash in on China.
… in case you don’t recall, #ClimateChange activist #TomSteyer — who criticizes America’s energy sector, but turns a blind eye to #China’s behemoth pollution (inc. in super-polluted #EastTurkistan/“#Xinjiang”) — used Chinese-favored tax havens for his $…
… more recently, it was discovered that billionaire #ClimateChange activist #TomSteyer cashed in on #China’s shady private equity market, tech startups, pharma co’s, & nursing homes.

Is he sincere in his activism, or padding his bottom line via #China?

Thread: #Chinese influence pervades #Australian politics - Parliamentarian Gladys Liu’s exposed past ties to Chinese Communist Party groups has ignited a political firestorm asiatimes.com/2019/09/articl…
legislator in Australia’s ruling coalition has admitted she had links with a communist group used by Beijing to advance its interests overseas. The potentially explosive revelation comes amid increasing scrutiny of political activities by ethnic Chinese in the country.
Gladys Liu, Australia’s first China-born member of parliament, confirmed on September 11 that she had an honorary role in the Guangdong provincial chapter of the China Overseas Exchange Association (COEA) from 2003-2015.

1/ I want to draw your attention to a great #cannabis #business #intelligence report just released from @FreshleafA which is free to download. Disclosure: they’re a past client of mine, but I wouldn’t promote this report if it wasn’t awesome freshleafanalytics.com.au
2/ The best part of this analysis is it’s based on proprietary data taken from the largest chain of cannabis clinics in #Australia. So, although the patient access data I publish is more comprehensive, theirs is more precise. Here are the highlights:
3/ Counting active patients in Australia is diff-i-cult. Freshleaf’s definition is anyone seeing a clinic #doctor, receiving a script or receiving a new or replacement approval. My preferred definition is anyone in possession of an active recommendation but here's their graph

"Modi’s external balancing game is either shrewd and ambitious or naive and dangerous, depending on whom in Delhi you speak to."

Here's a long THREAD with annotated quotes from my recent strategic-geostrategy essay...
brookings.edu/opinions/is-mo…
Every few months or so, I get out of my "neighbourhood" shell and take a look at the big picture of India's foreign policy. This 5k words essay focuses on the big Delhi debate: how should India (re)align in an changing world order? I analyze a range of positions... highlights:
"The world order’s volatility has animated the eternal Indian #debate about the tactical terms of strategic diversification ...how exactly should Delhi balance these — competing/conflicting—friends, partners, and allies into a bundle that enhances India’s strategic autonomy?"

A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.
