#Queensland amusement park case verdict cd be a classic example of how a prosecution can collude to lose a case. No dispute at all that it is Govt land.Only issue is whether it belongs to HRCE or Revenue Dept.Eviction sought by HRCE quashed bcos they cd not prove it as their land
Why isn't Revenue Dept pressing its case for eviction? Dist. Collector rejected temple claim that the land was theirs. Also judgement says that Queensland offered to provide alternate land and Collector had inspected it. Contrast this with Sastra case where Govt says no
question of accepting alternate land. Two Departments of the same Govt. ostensibly "fight" with each other to allow an encroachment to continue. And shockingly Judgement says Govt is "considering" proposal of Queensland to provide alternate land. Most damning are these sentences

#Flu in #Queensland to 05May2022
😷Quite the incline.
WIll have to 👀 if that is a real peak
😷As those who have followed me for a while will know, the current data point often changes in the subsequent week as outstanding results are finalised and reported.
But a very clear sign of #flu impact here in the hospitalisation numbers.
😷And while there is no context, compare a low flu area to a high flu area to see that the number of #flu infections per 100,000 population is well above "normal" (which would normally be very low)

Our dated to reach 70% and 80% fully vaccinated, at this rate of uptake, are two months away! We can't open up until we get there.
And at the moment, that date is getting *further* away, not closer.

1: It's time to claim my space. I was one of just a few journos who held @AndrewLamingMP to account prior to 2021. I lived in Bowman from 2012-2017 and I reported on him via @margokingston1's @NoFibs. AN EVOLVING THREAD on #Laming #LGBTQ equality #Journalism #Books and more.
2: It began in 2013 when I submitted an article on #MarriageEquality to Margo's #CitizenJournalism news site @NoFibs. Up until then, the site had not really covered that issue, which mattered a lot to me. @MrKRudd had just announced his support for reform:…
3: The image above is of Senator Sue Boyce (@SenatorSue) former LNP Senator for Queensland, crossing the floor to become the first LNP politician in the country to vote for marriage equality. It was a short walk but it gave the #LGBTQ community hope.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

#NewZealand #Australia #Mooloolaba #Queensland #Coronavirus

On board the Sofrana Surville there are two positive cases of Covid-19, Queensland Health authorities report. The ship is a suspected source of infection for a port worker in New Zealand.
Steven Miles, Minister of Health of Queensland, said all 19 crew onboard the Sofrana Surville had now been screened. Instead of docking in Brisbane as scheduled, the ship was ordered to anchor off the coast of Mooloolaba.
In New Zealand, the strain of Covid-19 from the engineer was never observed before and was not seen in Australia. There is a frequent circuit between Brisbane, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia and New Zealand and Sofrana Surville.

1 of 20/ For anyone who watched @craigreucassel’s #FightforPlanetA last night and wants to know more about Australia’s #deforestation rates, its links to #climatechange & #beef production, here's some links to evidence and articles. Warning: it’s a long thread!
2 of 20 #Deforestation has escalated in Australia over recent years, much to the dismay of scientists:…

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

#Flu in Australia to 15MAY2020
This year is in pink. The year was tracking for a lot of reported infections - as big as the 2019 #flunami (green). Then physical distancing.
Flu testing *is* still happening, but I can't speak to whether levels may have dropped due to SARS-CoV-2 Image
Respiratory virus data in next tweet is from Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology labs weekly report.
They service #Queensland, northern New South Wales and wider Darwin area and Alice Springs… Image
As expected, #flu and other viruses have been hit hard by physical distancing...but the rhinoviruses are still there. And at decent levels. Interesting. There R0 isn't thought to be higher than SARS-CoV-2 (unless it needs a fresh look) Hardier for longer because non-enveloped? Image

As #Australia reels from unprecedented bushfires, the disconnect between its vulnerability to #climate change and the inadequacy of its government's response is coming under international scrutiny.
We have produced a mountain of research on this -
👇👇 thread👇👇
1/ #Australia is on fire due in large part to #climate change yet the government is looking for ways to weaken the Paris Agreement by using 40 y. o. Kyoto protocol credits to meet its 2030 targets. We show there's no legal basis for this @TheAusInstitute
2/ Our calculations show just how bad using Kyoto carryover units to meet #ParisAgreement commitments would be for #climate action: an extra 0.1˚C of warming that wld not otherwise hv occurred due to delays in energy & economic system transformation
