1、More books you read, less pains you gains
  Rich people can use money to try the fault, but if we don't have that money, we should read enough book to avoid the risk,to distinguish the trap. how to get it? from the books, we can get lots of logic, when the book is enough, our brain can generate a logic which is the real  precious to yourself, and no one can rab it or stole it from you, if you ask which book we should read first. Of course i highly recomand you read the history book first. Because all the things happened in the history. If you say : I can't not find the same things happen now in the history books , that proof you read the history not enough. 
because you don't have enough money to try the fault. And more people even have not second time to try the second. Because first fault will kill him. So read books is the most important thing to do in your life.
2、Less angry more  
   angry only come from the people who is not smart. The budda says do not see other's fault ,only see yours.
When some bads things happens, you should understand, why it is happen, perhaps you will say jack do it ,he is so foolish,i will fire him right now, if you think like this you are coward. Why you can not see Jack's daily work, you should understand the people's temperament, which he can do which he can not do, Ex: you want to study how to drive car, but you find a people who only can drive plane, perhaps you will say : stupid! i never do that things. 
yes, Jack is the plane driver, but you call him to drivecar ,because you can't find his real ability, you just listen to him,  he tell you he can do,you trust him. When it broken you will say is not your fault. honest say all is yourself fault, others is no fault in you all life.
    Like a tiger, when you see a tiger want to eat you ,you will run home to tell you father, the tiger is so fierce, really that time you know the tiger is fierce, because tiger's nature instinction is fierce, like the other people, when you see he or she is stupid, is not his fault, that his natrue temper, just you can not accept, but do you know what happens on his life, how he become like this, you have money to go to school ,did he has that money to read?
so, never see other's fault includ you wife or husbend. 
3、family trap quarrel with others
     Especially with you mate, when you are frustrated right now, pls do not close it.
    Two different people come from different family ,just i said in second, different family have different family culture. yes, culture!  So the first all is surface you saw, his handsome or hers pretty, and in oder to get together, you can tolerate hers first , but when you married you can not tolerant her anymore, because hers mind is different from you , so you angry? why don't you understand her ,if you really love her, you can obey her, write here you perhaps say: all time to obey her, why i need obey, i can't tolerant this all the life. Don't worry this, you are building your family's culture, you should let her know this, please understand each other, all the thing we do in oder for the family. If she don't understand it. you should tolerant it, because you should be a smart people, if all you can not understand it, the family will over. 
    Remmber, who first apologise to another, who is the angle. Time will proof your's decide is right after years.
every one can not be really stupid, she or he will understand this. 
    Ok, this the two mind from my head. hope can help you.

A man died after being stuck inside a ramped ambulance for five hours at Flinders, the union says, the sixth death this month linked to the growing crisis.

Othersadelaidenow wrote the post • 0 comments • 78 views • 2022-03-23 09:26 • added this tag no more than 24h

Another death is being blamed on ramping – the sixth this month – as the ambulance union continues to highlight problems in the system regardless of the change of government.

The Ambulance Employees Association says a man aged in his 60s died after being ramped at Flinders Medical Centre for five hours on Tuesday afternoon.

The union says the man went into cardiac arrest and died despite efforts by paramedics and hospital emergency staff to resuscitate him.

“Tragically we have seen another death in our ramping crisis,” the union announced on social media.

It says the man was a Covid patient but it is understood he had been cleared after an earlier diagnosis.

The death came on the same day new Premier Peter Malinauskas confirmed Labor health spokesman Chris Picton – who had relentlessly highlighted ramping as an issue – would be the new health and wellbeing minister.
 
It followed another high-pressure night on the health system with major metropolitan hospital emergency departments operating above capacity at various times.

At 9am on Wednesday there were 102 patients who had been treated in metropolitan EDs but were waiting for a bed or suitable accommodation, including 14 who had been waiting for more than 24 hours.

While demand had eased by morning, the logjam had caused long waits to be treated overnight and at 9am there was still a 291-minute average wait to be seen at the Lyell McEwin Hospital.

The death is the sixth to be linked to ramping this month by the union, although full investigations are still continuing.

On March 15 the union said there had been two deaths overnight linked to delays in ambulances arriving – the next day it linked another death to delays.

Prosecutors have dropped an application to have a northern suburbs shopping centre frozen with a lawyer for the business blasting the “paucity of evidence” against his client.

Othersadelaidenow wrote the post • 0 comments • 160 views • 2022-03-23 09:23 • added this tag no more than 24h

Prosecutors have dropped their application to have a northern suburbs shopping centre frozen after one of its directors was charged with trafficking in large amounts of cannabis.

Dante Martire, 46, of Payneham South is charged along with three other people with crimes alleged to have occurred in Mount Barker.

On Wednesday, the Director of Public Prosecutions sought to have Mr Martire’s shares in Martins Plaza Shopping Centre frozen while court proceedings continue.

The move was a reversal of a previous application heard earlier this month to have the actual Parafield Gardens shopping centre restrained by the courts.

The order would not have meant the shopping centre would have been shuttered – but that its owners would not have been able to sell it, borrow against it or diminish its value while court proceedings continued.

Judge Karen Thomas ordered that the company be removed as a respondent from the DPP’s application and instead placed as an interested party who would be allowed a voice in the continuing lawsuit.

The move represented a backing down from the DPP’s prior position that they could prove that Mr Martire had a controlling interest in the company.

Instead it was his seven shares in the company out of a total of 35 which were frozen.
 
Steven Hagivassillis, for St Martin Plaza Shopping Centre, said the DPP had pursued the application without officially notifying his client.

“It was disappointing that my client was initially named as a respondent, especially given the paucity of evidence regarding effective control,” Mr Hagivassillis said.

“It appears that the application was pushed at the last proceeding without my clients being served.”

Judge Thomas said it was for the company to take up with the DPP and ordered the shares be seized.

Prosecutors are also trying to have Mr Martire’s interest in another company – Savmar – which they claim he has a controlling interest in.

During the hearing earlier this month Judge Thomas froze a million-dollar Payneham South house and a Beulah Park property that last sold for $650,000, and which belongs to Mr Martire.

She also ordered a silver Ford ute, a blue 1968 Holden sedan be restrained and $410,955 in Mr Martire’s account be frozen.

Documents released by the Adelaide Magistrates Court show police allege Mr Martire, along with Anthony Canova, 46, Rebecca Canova, 43 and Ivan Marotti, 65, cultivated and trafficked cannabis on January 5, 2022.
 
Ms Canova is also charged with trafficking cannabis in McLaren Vale on January 6.

Under the current legislation a large commercial quantity of cannabis is more than 2.5kg or 100 plants. view all

Accused NCA bomber guilty of spitting on police officer in jail

Othersadelaidenow wrote the post • 0 comments • 77 views • 2022-03-23 09:15 • added this tag no more than 24h

The man accused of bombing the National Crime Authority in Adelaide has been found guilty of assaulting police.
Officers had been called to the Adelaide Remand Centre in 2018 following reports Domenic Perre, the key suspect in the 1994 blast, had been assaulted.
As the investigator approached Perre inside his cell in 2018, he turned and spat on him. Perre did not testify at his trial but did deny it happened.

 
His lawyers argued there was no forensic evidence and the officer's recollection was coloured by 63-year-old Perre's notoriety.
However, the magistrate ruled today the responding officer was acting properly within his duties and found Perre guilty.

He was not in court for the verdict because he is unwell and may have contracted COVID-19, his lawyer said.

Perre will be sentenced for the police assault at the end of March.

He is also on trial over the 1994 NCA bombing, accused of murdering a federal police officer.

That case is with a Supreme Court justice and a date for the verdict has not been set yet.

Labor's huge win against the Liberals in the South Australian state election underscores an important lesson in the upcoming federal election.

Othersadelaidenow wrote the post • 0 comments • 83 views • 2022-03-23 08:50 • added this tag no more than 24h

Federal Labor and Liberal figures say there are lessons to be learned out of the South Australian state election contest.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is poised to pull the trigger on a federal election in coming weeks, with May 14 widely expected to be poll day.

In South Australia on Saturday night, Liberal leader Steven Marshall conceded the loss of government to the Labor opposition led by Peter Malinauskas after only one term.
 
The loss was the first for any incumbent state or territory government during the pandemic.

Retiring federal Liberal MP Nicolle Flint said the party would need to pay attention to the requirements of Mr Morrison’s “quiet Australians”, who were devastated by issues such as the SA Liberal government’s decision to axe the Adelaide 500 Supercars race.
 
She said suburban voters, who were already impacted by the loss of car manufacturing jobs and the COVID-19 pandemic, felt the motor race decision was like “another nail in the coffin”.

Labor MP Amanda Rishworth said while the Morrison government had talked about jobs, voters in suburban SA had not benefited.

“The messaging around the economy and jobs has not been as tangible as it should have been out in the suburbs,” she told Sky News.

“We have to speak to bread and butter issues - that is the lesson.”
 
Cabinet minister Anne Ruston said the state election had been fought on issues around health and the Marshall government’s management of the pandemic, not federal issues.

Senator Ruston said when it came to the federal election, it would be fought on jobs and national security.

“They are two different elections and they are going to be fought on two different grounds,” she said.

She rejected suggestions Mr Marshall should have picked more of a fight with Canberra in order to be seen as a strong leader for his state.

“I reckon Australians want our governments to work together,” she said.

One of the key factors in the state election which could impact on the federal result is the shifting of votes from minor parties such as SA Best - led by former senator Nick Xenophon - to Labor, and the strength of the Greens vote.

It could see the defeat of two sitting crossbench senators, Rex Patrick and Stirling Griff.

With the seat of Boothby set to be a key battleground in the federal vote, a swing in the state seat covering that area to Labor will give the federal opposition some heart.
 
Prime Minister responds

On Sunday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison congratulated Mr Malinauskas on the win and wished Mr Marshall well.

“It’s a significant victory and they are elected with a very strong mandate to move forward with many issues that they’ve intended take forward,” Mr Morrison told reports in Sydney.

“To my dear friend, Steven Marshall, who has been an outstanding Premier, I want to wish him all the very best and I want to thank him for the tremendous role that he played in turning around his own state.

“I want to thank him for his great leadership, I also want to thank him for the very positive and constructive role he played around the national cabinet table.

“Steven Marshall ran a good show for the time he served as premier and I was very pleased to work closely with him on turning the state around, getting people into jobs, getting investment into businesses, and putting confidence back.”

Peter Malinauskas says the state’s hospitals had one of their worst periods in terms of demand last week and SA health is now racing to prepare for a COVID surge.

South Australia will boost hospital capacity to handle COVID-19 patients amid forecasts for case numbers to increase sharply.

New Premier Peter Malinauskas said SA Health had been asked to look at ways to ensure hospitals were better prepared in light of recently updated modelling, which pointed to 8000 cases a day within the next few weeks.

“What you will see in that modelling is that case numbers, even with current policy settings, are set to escalate in a rather significant way,” Mr Malinauskas said.
 
“South Australians are entitled to know where we’re at.

“People have seen case numbers go up and that looks as though it’s continuing in the very near future.”

Mr Malinauskas said a briefing with health officials had revealed SA hospitals were under extraordinary strain and had one of their worst periods last week in terms of demand.
 
That resulted in a decision on Friday to cancel some elective surgery, he said.

The new premier has also signalled a shift in the way the SA government manages the pandemic, with a decision to abolish the COVID Ready Committee and put responsibility in the hands of a sub-committee of the state cabinet.

He said the Emergency Management Council would have more authority to make decisions.

Mr Malinauskas said more broadly he had a desire for SA to fall into line with other states in terms of ongoing virus rules.

Amid concerns around the latest virus modelling, SA will keep its mask mandates and isolation rules in place but the premier said more would be said on those rules on Friday after the first meeting of the Emergency Management Council.

SA reported another 3686 new virus infections on Tuesday with 165 people in hospital including 11 in intensive care.

The federal government has imposed an immediate ban on Australian exports of alumina and aluminium shipments to Russia alongside a new suite of support measures for Ukraine.

The federal government has imposed an immediate ban on Australian exports of alumina and aluminium shipments to Russia alongside a new suite of support measures for Ukraine.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said this will reduce Russia's ability to produce weaponry, including guns, ammunition, and missiles.

"Our decision here should say very clearly to all companies operating in Australia, we are watching these things very, very carefully," he told reporters in Sydney on Sunday.

"It is vital that we ensure that we diversify away from providing any support to Russia, particularly at a time they are invading their neighbours."

Australia will donate military equipment and coal to the Ukrainian effort to defend their country from invasion while placing additional sanctions on Russia.

Following discussions between Mr Morrison, Defence Minister Peter Dutton and their Ukrainian counterparts, an additional $21 million worth of Australian Defence Force stock will seek to meet priority requests from Ukraine, the government announced on Sunday morning.

It comes on top of $70 million in military assistance Australia has already provided.

Australians who want to support those fleeing Ukraine will be able to make tax deductible donations to approved organisations supporting refugees in Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary.

Ukrainians fleeing the conflict who have arrived in Australia will also be able to apply for a three-year temporary humanitarian visa.

Australia will donate at least 70,000 tonnes of thermal coal for Ukraine's power stations and withhold bauxite, used to make aluminium, from Russia.

An additional $30 million in humanitarian assistance will focus on protecting displaced women and children and addressing food shortages.

Australian Council for International Development CEO Marc Purcell said NGOs would work with government on delivering the assistance through the Australian Humanitarian Partnership.

"This is a critical intervention for the Ukrainian people in their hour of need and a demonstration of solidarity with their plight," he said.

The aid announcement comes after China's Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng warned against the unimaginable consequences of forcing a major nuclear power "into a corner".

Mr Le told a Beijing security forum on Saturday the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation should also avoid expanding further towards Russia.

He said the sanctions against the country are "getting more and more outrageous" and will only harm ordinary citizens and the global economy.

"History has proven time and again that sanctions cannot solve problems," Mr Le said.

Health Minister Greg Hunt is optimistic about the future of the pandemic in Australia, saying the country's response to COVID-19 has beaten expectations.

Health Minister Greg Hunt is optimistic about the future of the pandemic in Australia, saying the country's response to COVID-19 has beaten expectations.

The nation on Sunday recorded seven virus deaths and more than 40,400 new cases, while almost 2100 patients were in hospital with 102 in intensive care and 21 on ventilation, according to state and territory figures.

Mr Hunt, who's retiring at the upcoming federal election, believes Australia remains in an enviable position globally.

"We are a stronger and a better country than many acknowledge," he told Sky News on Sunday.

"The resilience of Australians, the fact that we have had one of the lowest rates of loss of life in the world, one of the highest vaccination rates."

Mr Hunt said the federal government, the general population and thousands of nurses, doctors, pathologists and health sector workers had helped the country bounce back from COVID-19.

He said his one regret about the pandemic was not spending more time with his family.

"I've never been as good a dad as I would have liked to have been," Mr Hunt said.

"You try to be present, but even when you're there in person you may not be fully present because of the demands of the role, which is what you sign up for.

"But having said that, I leave optimistic about Australia."

His comments come after the COVID-19 outbreak intensified ramping at hospitals, particularly in NSW, South Australia, Victoria and Queensland.

Paramedics are planning industrial action against the NSW government on Monday by refusing to leave their posts to fill gaps at other ambulance stations.

The 24-hour action on Monday is part of ongoing union efforts to improve emergency responder staffing and pay.

"We're taking action to demand a better resourced service. We want a fairer workplace for Paramedics, and improved coverage and care for our communities," Australian Paramedics Association NSW president Chris Kastelan said in a statement on Sunday.

The union is pushing for an additional 1500 paramedics that it says are needed to turn around deteriorating ambulance response times across the state.

It also wants a pandemic payment, and a pay rise of more than 2.5 per cent.

Meanwhile in South Australia, a new Labor government has been elected partly after pledging to cut ramping times.

Incoming premier Peter Malinaukas will soon meet senior health officials and Police Commissioner Grant Stevens to discuss the state's health advice after winning the election on Saturday.

He also intends to amend SA's laws that impose restrictions and other measures including mask mandates, lockdowns and density limits.

"The act is not fit for purpose for a global pandemic that lasts for two years," Mr Malinaukas said.

In Victoria, the state government will offer subsidised and free TAFE courses to people looking to work in health care and other in-demand jobs.

Premier Daniel Andrews said the pandemic had highlighted the importance of skilling for the healthcare sector, as well as causing many people to reconsider their careers.

"If you want a job that really matters then now is the time to make a change," he said on Sunday.

The 10,000 extra TAFE places announced will cost about $61.6 million and won't be limited to healthcare courses. view all

Scientists want to help Australia tap into a $90 billion global "circular economy" by finding new ways to recycle and reuse plastics.

Scientists want to help Australia tap into a $90 billion global "circular economy" by finding new ways to recycle and reuse plastics.

CSIRO is aiming to cut Australia's plastic waste by 80 per cent by 2030 and build up a plastic alternatives industry while ending the importation of plastics.

The new mission involves a $50 million cash splash and will see CSIRO scientists work with other academic institutions and the government.

Scientists also hope to harness nature to help tackle waste by researching how meal worms eat plastic and synthetic materials derived from seaweed.

"Our mission will be the national catalyst for systematic change to tackle plastic pollution," mission lead Dr Deborah Lau said.

"It will drive a significant coordinated response across the innovation sector and bring science and technology to the forefront to help deliver a myriad of solutions to end plastic waste."

Australians use one million tonnes of single use plastic each year and only 12 per cent of that is recycled.

Three-quarters of plastic waste along Australia's coastline is single use plastics.

Some of the things researchers have already helped develop includes a real-time monitoring system of stormwater drains allowing workers to detect when too much rubbish has built up in a waste trap.

CSIRO will also partner with Murdoch University researchers under a new innovation hub, which is already looking at developing compostable bottles, caps and wrappers.

"Some bioplastics are already in the market but most need UV light to breakdown," university researcher Professor Daniel Murphy said.

"Our compostable bioplastics will breakdown in compost, landfill or in water, without leaving a trace."

Global demand for plastics is expected to double by 2040 with the plastic waste industry already valued at about $117 billion. view all

Canberrans are being reminded to avoid wild mushrooms after a young child who ingested a death cap mushroom was hospitalised.

Canberrans are being reminded to avoid wild mushrooms after a young child who ingested a death cap mushroom was hospitalised.

Acting ACT chief health officer Dr Vanessa Johnston said the child presented to a hospital emergency department on Friday.

ACT Health could not confirm the child's condition, but Dr Johnston said it was reminder for people to be careful around wild mushrooms.

"As the name suggests, death cap mushrooms can be deadly and all parts of the mushroom are poisonous whether they have been cooked or not," she said.

"Eating wild mushrooms is just not worth the risk. Don't eat mushrooms you have found in the wild, and only purchase mushrooms from a reputable supplier."

The ACT government undertakes routine site inspections at known, high yielding sites on a weekly basis between February and June.

Death cap mushrooms were on Friday detected around Canberra and removed.

The deadly mushrooms often grow near established oak trees and can easily be mistaken for edible mushrooms.

Wild mushrooms should not be touched with bare hands, and children and animals should be kept away from them.

Anyone who finds mushrooms in their yard should wear disposable gloves to remove and dispose of them.

People should urgently attend an emergency department if they believe they've eaten a wild mushroom.

They should also take any remaining mushroom to the hospital for identification.

Symptoms of poisoning generally occur 6 to 24 hours after eating mushrooms, and include pains, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. view all

Australian researchers have discovered a way to transform the delivery of chemotherapy, potentially curtailing toxic side effects for thousands of cancer patients.

Australian researchers have discovered a way to transform the delivery of chemotherapy, potentially curtailing toxic side effects for thousands of cancer patients.

The key to the world-first find is the use of nanomedicines - drugs hidden within nanoscopic fatty membranes or liposomes - which have the ability to more accurately target tumours rather than surrounding tissue.

Scientists at the University of South Australia say the delivery of frequently used chemotherapy drug 5-FU or Fluorouracil is 100 per cent more effective when administered using an optimised liposomal formulation.

Employing a minimally invasive sampling technique known as micro-dialysis, they have been able to demonstrate the biodistribution of 5-FU in a way not possible with traditional imaging approaches.

Lead researcher and co-director at UniSA's Centre for Pharmaceutical Innovation, Professor Clive Prestidge, says the advance could alter the quality of cancer treatment across the board.

"Chemotherapy is regularly administered to treat many different types of cancers, including breast and colon cancers but one of the major setbacks of 5-FU is that it does not distribute well to tumour issues and can cause high levels of off-target damage," he said.

"As a result, many patients suffer adverse effects and can get very sick during treatment."

Prof Prestidge says liposomal formulations present great opportunities for safer, more effective medications because they prolong the retention of encapsulated drugs.

However optimising them for chemotherapy has long proved a challenge.

"Our micro-dialysis approach is the first to quantify how liposomal-specific delivery of 5-FU can reduce tumour growth with fewer toxic side effects," he said.

"It has the potential to dramatically transform many cancer treatments and deliver better outcomes for people with cancer."

With cancers accounting for almost 10 million - or one in six - fatalities worldwide, about 150,000 new cases are diagnosed in Australia annually.

Chemotherapy is regularly used to treat them, with 5-FU among the most widely used drugs.

Its side effects can include nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hair loss, diarrhoea or constipation, weight fluctuations, frequent infections and mouth sores. view all

Support for mental health will be one the key planks of the federal budget in just over a week's time, Health Minister Greg Hunt says.

Support for mental health will be one the key planks of the federal budget in just over a week's time, Health Minister Greg Hunt says.

Mr Hunt says mental health is one of the four pillars of Australia's long-term national health plan.

The other areas are primary care with a strong focus on access to new medicines and better treatments to aid doctors, support for hospitals and private health insurance, and medical research.

He said there will be a focus on youth suicide.

"Despite all the expectations, because of what we were able to do in tailored support for mental health we had a reduction in suicide in Australia of five per cent in 2020 - we are still waiting on the final figures for 2021," Mr Hunt told Sky News' Sunday Agenda program.

"We want to see it go lower, we want to see it head towards zero."

Details on the mental health support will be released in the March 29 budget.

However, the Morrison government will spend more than $315 million over four years to extend its national ice action strategy in the ongoing fight to reduce the impact of ice, other drugs and alcohol.

This investment comes alongside an additional $27.9 million being committed to support other critical drug and alcohol treatment projects in areas of identified need.

"For too many Australians, illegal drugs are still an insidious scourge on our community, robbing families of their loved ones," Mr Hunt said.

"The Morrison government is committed to building safe and healthy communities, reducing the impacts and harms of drug and alcohol use for individuals, their families and their communities."

National wastewater drug monitoring shows methamphetamine use has reduced for the second consecutive year.

Mr Hunt said while this was a good sign, there is still work to be done.

Additionally, the government is providing $28.1 million to establish a new agency - Genomics Australia - to support the integration of genomic medicine as a standard of healthcare in Australia.

"Genomic health technologies have the potential to reshape clinical practice and change the way we prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor illness throughout each person's life," Mr Hunt said.

Genomics Australia will be chaired by Professor Kathryn North. view all

Victorians looking to retrain for work in the healthcare sector and other in-demand jobs following the pandemic will be offered subsidised and free TAFE courses.

Premier Daniel Andrews said the pandemic had highlighted the importance of skilling for the healthcare sector, as well as causing many people to reconsider their careers.

"If you want a job that really matters then now is the time to make a change," he said on Sunday.

The announcement came as Victoria recorded another 6694 cases, but no deaths.

There are 215 people in hospital and 21 in ICU, with six on ventilation.

Some 63.8 per cent of those aged over 18 have received a third vaccine dose.

The 10,000 extra TAFE places announced will cost about $61.6 million but won't only be limited to healthcare courses.

Victoria offers free training at TAFE for select courses for eligible students including people under 20, unemployed people or those looking to reskill and change careers.

About 900 students per year will be able to train at the Kangan Institute's Essendon health hub when it opens in June, with new nursing and pathology simulation labs part of the construction. view all
