Councils rent out their hollow logs to animals.

It's an exciting and relatively new practice that's really taken off in the last couple of years. Previously, people built wooden nest boxes and put them in trees, but they are often heavy and difficult to lift into tree canopies (if they are made of hardwood) and they are more often used by rats and possums instead of the species most in need of using them. Carving hollows into trees seems more successful, even though it is a much more expensive way of doing things. There needs to be some care, though. If hollows are cut in live trees, it can cause the tree or at least a major tree limb to die. so it is always best to get advice from tree experts as to the best place to carve a hollow. Secondly, too many hollows in too many locations can favour the wrong species, mainly Rainbow Lorikeets, corellas and Brush-tailed Possums, which tend to oust other species such as gliders, small bats and many woodland bird species. So it is a complex science, and we are still learning about what hollows are most useful for the native wildlife that need them the most.

Yes, I saw that, very nasty.


A lot of people live in various parts of Asia because it's cheaper than more developed countries, and to assume a particular motive for a particular individual is ridiculous and an act of spite for having his submarine offer knocked back.


If I was the diver I'd be visiting my lawyer.

How nasty. Like a spoilt brat, not getting his own way. Having watched the rescue and seen how uneven the passage was I don't believe the sub could have got very far since it was rigid.

Maybe Elon Musk can sell his mini-submarine to the Australian Government.  We are trying to upgrade our submarine fleet, aren't we?  Sorry, France, Elon beat you to it.  :/

Even Putin must have been surprised with the outcome of this meeting.  Russia took the Crimean peninsula by military force, the United States by dealing with an idiot.

Is this the start of the end for "Teflon Don" ?


If he is seen to be on Russia's side instead of his own intelligence agency, then that's pretty close to treason as has been said.


It looks like he's putting his business interests over the interests of the US and the Western world.

Oops, that was a mistake ...

I think the Helsinki summit was Trump's Neville Chamberlain moment ... and we all know what happened to Chamberlain.  :/

Do you want your Healt records stored online ?


If not , you have 3 months to opt out.


http://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2018-07-16/my-health-record-experts-say-its-safe-privacy-concerns-remain/9981658

I have just opted out on line, using my medicare card and driver's licence as identification.  When it came to my medicare number there was a second panel into which I had to put my individual number.  It would not accept the same number.  Apparently whoever planned the layout didn't consider any one person being in such a situation! 

I phoned the help line and was answered by a very pleasant, courteous female who, after a few questions for identification,  went in and completed the application for me.

I've just been watching The Drum and it's convinced me to opt out.


I'll do so tomorrow.
