Heat is on: challenges to Hunter waste plan

Confident: Weston Aluminium managing director Garbis Simonian outside the Kurri Kurri plant where he proposes running a thermal waste facility.
苏州美甲培训

WESTON Aluminium is confident a proposed high temperature processing facility to deal with some of the state’s most problematic waste will go ahead at Kurri Kurridespite concerns by three NSW Government departments about issues including air emissions and flood impacts.

The Environment Protection Authority and Office of Environment and Heritage were unable to recommend conditions of approval without further information after reviewing Weston Aluminium’s environmental impact statement for a facility 400 metres from a residential area.

Hunter New England Health required a “substantial amount of information” about air quality impacts, including estimated dioxin emissions.

“The level of dioxins emitted appears to be significant, particularly during bypass operations,” Hunter New England Health population health service director Dr David Durrheim said.

Dioxins are identified by the World Health Organisation as highly toxic chemicals that cause cancer and can cause reproductive and development problems in humans. It is one of the so-called “dirty dozen” of environmental pollutants.

An Environment Protection Authority submission noted potential waste types included some likely to contain dioxin-forming materials.

“Burning of hydrocarbon-containing wastes will greatly increase the potential for dioxins/furans formation and such waste must not be burned unless very high levels of consistent process and procedural controls are set in place,” the EPA said.

Weston Aluminium’s proposal to process about 8000 tonnes ofquarantine,pharmaceutical and chemical waste, illicit drugs, paints, solvents and pathogenic substances per year at its Kurri Kurri site follows the closure of Australian aluminium smelters which previously provided the bulk of Weston Aluminium’s material for processing.

The proposalalso responds to the need for thermal treatment facilities in NSW which provide one of the only processing options for some problematic waste.

In their submissions the three government departments requested “robust justification” of estimated air emissions and expressed concern about assessing proposed air, emission and flood impacts because of lack of information.

The Office of Environment and Heritage expressed concern about flood impacts because of the site’s position in a flood area, subject to one in 100 year flood events.

The OEH said the Mitchell Street site experienced flood events greater than the one in 100 year flood event in 2007 and 2015. Information currently available showed there was “very little time for emergency response procedures to be implemented on site” in the event of major flood events, the OEH said.

The environmental impact statement did not consider the risk of stored dangerous goods on neighbouring areas or waterways in the event of severe flooding, the OEH said.

Dr Durrheim recommended Weston Aluminium adopt “a more community-driven approach” to the proposal after strong opposition from community groups.

In a submission to the environmental impact statement,Singleton Shire Healthy Environment Group spokesman Dr Neville Hodkinson said the proposal was for “a high temperature incinerator located in an otherwise residential area”.

In submissions to the Department of Planning, Weston Aluminium, headed by managing director Garbis Simonian, noted the company’s record of innovation and recycling problematic aluminium waste since 1998.

“Weston Aluminium has diverted significant quantities of otherwise by-product residues from landfill disposal, thereby achieving a zero-waste position,” a company submission said.

The company has applied to conduct a trial of high temperature processing of quarantine waste including imported materials that do not meet Australian standards, similar to a 24-month pharmaceutical processing trial that is on-going.

“Domestic processing and disposal options for quarantinewastes within NSW are limited, and regulations require that these wastes be thermally treated by incineration or autoclaving,” the company said.

“There is only one suitable NSW-based facility offering incineration services, and only two facilities with autoclaves.”

Weston Aluminium plant manager Chris McClung said the government department responses to the company’s environmental impact statement were “as expected for this type of project, given the nature of the proposal and the style of operation”.

The company had “a very good environmental track record”, and because it only began aluminium recycling operations in 1998, it was subject to very stringent environmental performance requirements, Mr McClung said.

Monitoring data was available on the company’s website and the company complied with its licence conditions. Weston Aluminium was “extremely confident” about its high temperature facility proposal after completing 15 months of a 24-month trial of pharmaceutical and illicit drug processing with no exceedances, he said.

Dioxin control had been “part of our operations” since the original processing facility opened and “we’ve got a very good track record”, he said.

“We’re happy to respond to the department requests and we want regulators and other bodies to be as active as they can because it results in a better project.”

TAFE pushes on with vet course despite complaints

RELATED: ‘We don’t believe we have learnt enough’
苏州美甲培训

BENDIGO TAFE has saidit is proud of its veterinary nursing course, and is planning on opening its own practice, despite morestudents speaking out about what they believe is a lack of organisation at the tertiary institution.

Four more of the TAFE’s first veterinary nursing cohort contactedtheBendigo Advertiserafter it was reported in December student Jemma Rainbow was demanding a refund of her course fees.

Common complaints among the disgruntled students include a “revolving door” of teachers, lengthy waits for assignments to be markedand a failed promise to find students work experience.

Shannon Wallace wanted to work in a veterinary clinic since childhood, so was overjoyed when her local TAFE began offering the qualification, the first of its kind in central Victoria.

But her excitement quicklyturned to disappointment because of what she called “chaos” at the TAFE.

“Everything was just so unorganised,” she said.

“Half the time we didn’t know what we were doing.”

Despite leaving the course after just one year, Ms Wallace estimates shestill outlaid as much as $700 for her study,a sum she said was significant.

She has given up hope of seeing the money again.

“I’m very disappointed and I’m very frustrated because I know, even if I did try to get money back, It’d be like getting blood out of a stone,” Ms Wallace said.

Bendigo TAFE food and fibre education manager Nicole Broe said there were“a few teething issues” when the course began in 2015.

While she was confident the problems were resolved, Ms Broe said the course’s“high popularity” meant some students had trouble securing work placements.

Placement completiondates were extended to allowmore time for students toundertake fieldwork and practical placements were offered in a“simulated clinical work environment”at theTAFE, she said.

“We are also continuing to build strong partnerships with local veterinary clinics and other animal workplaces to formalise placement arrangements and increase work placement opportunities, to better manage the demand.”

There are also plans for the TAFE’s new food and fibre centre at its Charleston Road campus to include a working veterinary clinic.

But news of the clinic was cold comfort for graduate Catherine Jordanwhosaid she does not feel qualified to work in a veterinary settingdespite finishing the course.

A lack of hands-on training meant she was considering more study before becominga working veterinary nurse.

“We didn’t touch an animal for the first year, first year-and-a-half,” Ms Jordan said.

“That’s mind-blowing to me.

“You can only read it so many times in a book becausewhen it comes down to doing things,it’s a completely different scenario.”

What she had learned came from work experience she sourced herself after the TAFE failed to find her practical placement.

She travelled to Maryborough for her unpaid work placement,after failing to find opportunities closer to her Lockwoodhome.

TAFE documents supplied to its students explained the institution would liaise with workplaces.

“It would be better if you did not contact the employer yourself until arrangements have been made by the Bendigo TAFE practical placement contact,” one document read.

“But all of us ended up out there, in the clinics, hounding them. The clinics just got fed up,” Ms Jordan said.

“The receptionists ended up just rolling their eyes.”

Rubbish dumping hurting Ballarat op shops

苏州美甲培训

Broken toys, torn clothing, stained pillows, dirty mops.

Thesearejust some of the pieces of rubbish being dumped at opportunity shops around Ballarat – and it’s coming at a cost.

A local op shop volunteer, who wished to remain anonymous, said hours were spent sorting through the junk with a financial cost of up to $8000 per year.

He said themoney was being taken away from the organisation’s social welfare programs.

“I had an example today wherea fella dropped off three massive bags of clothes that were smelly and filthy so I don’t know whether he honestly thought we coulddo something with them or he was just trying to get rid of them,” he said.

“But we’re not so bad, the Salvation Army op shop on Norman Street – if you ever go past there after a weekend, it’s horrific the amount of stuff they have.”

He said warning signs of prosecution and cameras did little to deter people, but hoped they would think twice if they realised the consequences of their actions.

Ballarat Community Church op shop manager Cynthia Roehrig said items such as unusable mattresses and couches meant money that could be put back into the community was being spentontip fees.

The trend was particularly bad this time of year as people did their clean outs.

“If it is useable goods definitely donate, but if it’s not please consider throwing out the stuff in your own general waste bins,” she said.

“Really you’re just doing more damage to us as a charity and costing us more money than anything.”

Salvo Stores country area manager Shayne Camille said while a fence erected around the Sebastopol op shop had helped decrease the practice, dumping at the Wendouree site was particularly bad to the point where the Ballarat Council hadstepped in to help with the clean up.

“People come to work and we’ve got a whole lot of donations that have been dumped at the doors overnight, it can take a lot of resources of staff and volunteers to clean up in the morning,”she said.

“Last year alone, Salvos Stores in Victoria spent 1.2 million dollars in disposing unsaleable goods, which equals 5000 tonnes of goods.

“It’s a lot of money…. we want to lookat what the money could have done for our social programs and how it could have helped a lot of people.”

While she said the organisation “really appreciated” donations, sheurged people to drop them off in store, which is open seven days a week in Ballarat, or use the home collection service.

“We want quality goods that aren’t damaged, that are in working order, and we want items that people would be happy to givea family member or a friend.”This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on 苏州美甲培训.

Lavender lovers were treated to sights of lush fields of a bumper lavender crop at the 2017 Lavandula festival.

A celebration of all things lavender, Lavandula farm owner Carol White said immense rain in the later part of 2016 had led to a bumper crop, significantly larger than the drought-affected 2015 crop.

Ms White said the warm weather meant crowds were eager to explore the grounds early in the morning.

“It’s a celebration of the lavender and when we harvest the flowers,” Ms White said.

“(Lavender) is a crop that we wait for all year.

“It’s a bumper crop this year. Last year was really down and we are really looking forward to it –it’s great to have a big crop.”

Festival growers were treated to music, lavender scones, l;lavender ice cream and even some lavender infused champagne.

“I think it’s the lavender and love the entertainment and the food and the dancing and it’s such a picturesque site and it’s beautiful to see all the lavender.”

苏州美甲培训

NEW SEASON: Bowral Blacks player Timothy Lewis in the 2016 preliminary final match against University. Photo: Adam McLean.

The 2016 season broke aneight-year streak since Bowral’s first grade team made it to finals.

The senior Blacksdeveloped in to a cohesive team under the expert coaching from Gene Fairbanks, Al Kanaar and Peter Burt, and the results spoke for themselves. This year, the team has aimed to play hard andwin the premiership.

The club will also aim to integrate girls into the club in 2017.

The Blacks have plannedto enter both girls and boys teams in aFriday night 7s series this year, which will begin inFebruary-March.

While the junior boys will move to the XV’s format for their regular season, it isplanned that the girls will play a ‘7 weeks of 7s’competition.

The competition will haveseven 7s tournaments, involving clubs from around the Illawarra district.

The 7s games will be played between the moths of April and August and it is planned that the grand final will be held in September.

The approach to girls 7s will set up the Blacks girls teams for the Southern Highlands 7s and NSW State Championships in October 2017.

There will also be a specific playing kit designed for the girls.

Bowral Blacks club president Mark Freund said the club was pleased to offer rugby 7s to girls in the Highlands community.

“This commitment to equality in sport is another step towards making rugby accessible for everyone at a grass roots level,” he said.

“The recent gold medal win by the Australian women’s rugby 7s team at the Rio Olympics has inspired many young people to play rugby 7s and we are proud to be able to offer a great rugby experience to local girls across the Highlands.” The Club is taking expressions of interest now for girls who may be interested.

For good of all, we must eat and buy sustainably

I arrived in Australia in February 2011, fresh faced and ready to explore the land of plenty. I dropped my jaw and backpack when I was asked to pay $9.50 for two bananas. They weren’t international prize-winning bananas, they were just two standard bananas.
苏州美甲培训

Cyclone Yasi had ripped through north Queensland earlier that month, wiping out three-quarters of Australia’s banana crop.

Five years later, avocado eaters tracked the price of the breakfast staple like Wall Street traders as a single fruit reached $7.

These are just two examples of how Mother Earth is putting us back in our place.

We can expect more food price spikes to come as the world warms and heatwaves, bushfires and storms intensify.

Summer barbies will get pricier, as the cost of farmed salmon, beef and wine are predicted to rise.

After a protein fix? Carbon dioxide reduces the protein content of some grains like our daily loaf.

Extreme weather is also shaking up how our food gets from the farm to our plate.

Like crops, highways and railroads are at risk of damage.

During the 2011 Queensland floods, several towns were cut off for up to two weeks, preventing food top ups.

There is generally less than one-month’s supply of non-perishable food and less than five days’ supply of perishable food in the supply chain at any one time – we’re extremely vulnerable.

It’s becoming more difficult to ignore Mother Earth’s warning signs. But we can reason with her.

Supporting our farmers, who work tirelessly to feed us, is a good start.

Eating more plant-based foods, buying the ugly fruit and eating at home more often will also help to make our food supply a sustainable one.

MH370: Hunt for missing airliner to end in two weeks

Malaysia has announced the A$200 million hunt for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 will end within two weeks, despite pleas that authorities push on with the search of a vast expanse of the far southern Indian Ocean.
苏州美甲培训

“We’re at the final lap within these two weeks,” transport minister Liow Tiong Lai told reporters, adding “we hope we can still find the plane.”

Mr Liow dampened hopes the search would be extended following a recommendation by investigators to search a new 25,000 kilometre area north of where it was first thought the plane crashed in March 2014 with 239 passengers and crew on board.

He said the imminent completion of a search of a 120,000 square kilometre area would end the most expensive and extensive search for an aircraft in history, in the absence of any “credible clue” suggesting it be extended.

The Turnbull government has also said the plane’s exact location would need to be pinpointed before more resources are committed to scouring any new area.

Aviation experts say one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries is likely to never be solved unless the plane is found and its black box recorders recovered.

Parts of the missing aircraft have been found on the shores African nation Tanzania as well as the Indian Ocean islands of Reunion and Mauritius.

A slew of theories have been raised to try to explain how the plane veered thousands of kilometres off course during a night flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, including pilot hijacking or a catastrophic malfunction on board the Boeing 777.

Some of the more outrageous conspiracy theories include that it was shot down by the US military or hijacked by Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Mr Liow said a meeting of officials from Australia, Malaysia and China would be held to discuss the search after the release of a final report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which has been leading the search mission.

Many of the passengers were Chinese.

The bureau said in a report last month that there was “a high degree of confidence that the previously identified underwater area searched to date does not contain the missing aircraft.”

“Given the elimination of this area, the experts identified an area of approximately 25,000 square kilometres as the area with the highest probability of containing the wreckage of the aircraft,” the report said, adding experts “were in agreement on the need to search” the additional area.

But Australia’s Transport Minister Darren Chester said the “information in the ATSB report, however, does not give a specific location of the missing aircraft”.

Many relatives of victims have long been sceptical the two-year search was underway in the right place.

In a statement the international group of MH370 next-of-kin called on Malaysia, Australia and China to consider the next step before the current search ends.

“Extending the search to the new area defined by experts is an inescapable duty owed to the flying public in the interest of aviation safety,” it said.

Josiah Sisson funeral: Family farewells son, brother lost on Christmas Day

His life lasted just nine years, but those who gathered for Josiah Sisson’s funeral on Saturday found comfort in their belief he will live forever in heaven.

Josiah’s life support was switched off on December 27, two days after he was struck by a vehicle at Springwood on Christmas Day, driven by local man Adrian Taylor.

Police have alleged Mr Taylor was under the influence of alcohol.

While Mr Taylor had met with Josiah’s father, Karl Sisson, since the accident, he was not among the about 300 mourners who packed the Potters House Christian Church at Strathpine on Saturday.

Such was the demand for space, the walls at the back of the church were lined with mourners unable to find a seat.

Josiah’s family – mother Bonny, father Karl and brother Jordan – cried and laughed with the rest of their church “family” as they farewelled their son and brother.

The duty of eulogising Josiah was left to close family friends.

Phil Ouma, whose family was with Josiah the night he was struck, told the funeral congregation Josiah was a great influence on his life from the moment he was born.

Although, to the amusement of the congregation, Mr Ouma admitted their relationship had a somewhat rocky start shortly after Josiah was born.

“I really wanted to hold the baby, so I asked Bonny very nicely, I said ‘Bonny, could I please hold Josiah?’,” he said.

“She very reluctantly obliged and passed him over to me, and as I grabbed Josiah, in my mind I thought I held him, but to my surprise, he slipped through my hands and landed on the floor.”

Mr Ouma said Josiah was always the first out of the car when the family came to visit, with the announcement – at the top of his voice – “the Sissons are here!”.

“What I always loved about Josiah is the fact that he was never afraid to speak his mind,” he said.

“He was a call-it-as-you-see-it kind of guy and there were many occasions when we were all thinking something and no-one wanted to say anything, but there was Josiah. He’d say it for us.

“I loved that about him. He had this unusual charm about him that I always admired. He was a peacemaker and wouldn’t let anything in the world take away his smile.”

Fiona Goodlet, a family friend from the church the Sissons attended in Perth before they moved to Brisbane, said Josiah was “bold, playful, fearless and cheeky” with a love of slapstick comedy and reading.

Indeed, Josiah’s mother Bonny Sisson has had to return 21 books to the local library, Ms Goodlet said.

“One thing is certain, that child has more front than Myer’s,” she said.

Ms Goodlet said Josiah crammed a lot of life in his nine years.

“I don’t think we measure a time in years, but in the way a life was lived and how it touched others,” she said.

“Josiah had brought so much joy and I hope his life continues to impact others. That’s our responsibility – not to keep him alive in our hearts, because I firmly believe he’s alive right now in heaven, but to ensure his life continues to touch others.”

Pastor Peter Field said he was convinced Josiah was now in a better place.

“When someone so young passes like this, what’s difficult is thinking about it’s too short,” he said.

“In a normal span of life, we think there’s meant to be so many days left, but the reality is, there’s nothing certain about that…

“We all think, ‘I’m going to live to an old age’ but in the reality of life, that is not always the case.

“As Christians, we have to remember and realise to die is gain at any age, because heaven is the destiny for every Christian.”

The Christian faith ran strong through the ceremony at the evangelical church north of Brisbane.

As the familiar sound of Amazing Grace filled the air, Karl and Jordan Sisson led the funeral procession for their beloved son and brother, before the mourners dispersed to a nearby community centre to spend time with the family.

Mr Murray will face court on February 14, charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance, and driving a motor vehicle under the influence.
