Giants Australia

The World was completely covered in giants on every continent before and after modern man appeared on the scene.
The Proof is everywhere, or was. On every continent, except South America, all (remains) were confiscated and vanished. ALL!
In one case in America, 60 skeletons 10 to 12 feet tall were found in a cave by some farmers. Every single one vanished. And in their place were put fake artifacts and the heights were changed to between 6 and 8 feet, everywhere.
Only old stories of eye witnesses are left to dispute the “Official Story”.
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.” Gen 6:4

In old Pleistocene river gravels near Bathurst, N.S.W. huge stone artifacts-clubs, pounders, adzes, chisels, knives and hand-axes-all of tremendous weight, lie scattered over a wide area.
A fossicker searching the Winburndale River north of Bathurst discovered a large quartzitised fossil human molar tooth, far too big for any normal modern human. A similar molar of chert fossilisation was also recovered from ancient deposits near Dubbo, N.S.W. Prospectors working in the Bathurst district over 40 years ago frequently reported coming across large human footprints in shoals of red jasper.

Some of these have been rediscovered over the years and give every appearance of being of great antiquity. The point raised by these discoveries is that there once existed on the Australian continent giant tool-making hominids who preceeded the aborigines (Austroloids)by many thousands of years. For, it is certain that the aborigines were never the first inhabitants of this continent. Even they admit in their ancient folklore that this land was inhabited by many races of man, as well as giants, long before them.


Green Island - Cairns Queensland Australia

Green Island is 27 km offshore from Cairns in North Queensland. Most visitors travel to Green Island on commercial charter boats from Cairns. Commercial charter boats depart from the Reef Fleet Terminal at the end of Spence Street. Travel time to the island varies between 50 and 60 mins.
Commercial helicopter and seaplane services also operate to and from the island.

The island and reef are part of the traditional sea country of the Guru-Gulu Gungandji Aboriginal people. They know the island as Wunyami. Today the Guru-Gulu Gungandji people maintain a close connection with the island.
Green Island has been a popular tourist destination for more than a century. The island became a national park in 1937, a marine park in 1974 and part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area in 1981. The surrounding waters form part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Great Barrier Reef Coast Marine Park and are within in the Scientific Research (Orange) or Marine National Park (Green) zones.

Green Island resort offers facilities for day visitors as well as luxury overnight accommodation.

Green Island draws more than 300,000 people each year from all over the world. Due to this high level of visitation Green Island is important to the regional economic base and is a significant recreation and tourism destination in the region.

How do I make a App


Creating a great app or game is only part of the story. The most important part is how to get on top of the App store sales.  Most developers are failing one after another in their efforts to live their dream. They put all their efforts into the development, and miss out on the most important thing that will make sure their App succeeds.

Here are some stats about Apple that are very interesting!
6 Billion Apps downloaded from Apple`s Appstore currently.

Apple sold 5million iPhones 5 on the first weekend it was released.

Over 250 million Apple iPods iPads and iPhones have been sold.

Apple App store alone generates $5.4 million a day for the top 200 top grossing apps.
There are currently 750,000 approved apps in the apple store.

 Even the best app can remain totally unknown.

Coal seam gas, shale gas and fracking in Australia

Coal seam gas (CSG) and the gas that comes from shales are chemically very similar. They generate the same amount of heat and CO₂ when burned in your heater or at an electricity power plant. And both coal seam gas and shale gas produce about half the CO₂ of brown coal.

Fracture stimulation of coal and shale reservoirs, also known as fracking, consists of injecting a high-pressure mix of water, sand and chemicals into the reservoir.
The high-pressure water creates fractures in the reservoir. After the fracture is created, the injector pumps are shut off, the water flows back into the well, the sand stays in the fractures keeping them propped open and gas starts to flow via the fractures to the well bore.
Fractures created by this process are designed to grow tens of meters in height above the point in the well bore where they are initiated.
There is a slight risk that this fracking process can break out of the gas reservoir and grow into distant shallower aquifers.

The oil and gas industry say that contamination of a shallow aquifer via fracture stimulation has never happened in the 1.5 million fracking jobs that have been performed in the past 60 years.

However, the New York Times recently reported a case where this might have happened. Interestingly, the Times says an unusual conduit was required in the above case; the fracture stimulation did not leak directly into the aquifer, but to a nearby improperly abandoned standard well bore.
Shale reservoirs are deeper than CSG reservoirs, and are thus further away from the shallow surface aquifers on which many communities and rural properties rely. This mitigates risks associated with the fracking process.
A more realistic – but less sensational – community concern is over industrial activity. Drilling and fracking wells requires heavy equipment, which is brought in on several dozen large trucks.
Drilling and fracking a well can be a busy and noisy process that can last a few days for shallow coal seam gas wells to several weeks for the deepest shale wells. It can be quite disruptive to those living nearby.

The Australian shale gas reservoirs currently being evaluated are in remote South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. This remoteness tends to minimise the community impact.


Outback Cooking

  A little outback snack to keep me going!!
Water is probably your most important thing to pack when your outback. Good clean water is essential for not only drinking, but also for outback cooking. Some water may be available from streams etc, but who knows the quality of this water? Take some purification tablets with you and boil the water before drinking if sourcing it this way.
Only carry water in storable food containers designed for this and do not mix water and fuel containers up if you are carrying fuel as well. Carry water in at least a couple of different containers then if one breaks or leaks, you still have at least one container with good water.
If you cant catch a roo or goanna to cook outback, take some of this tucker.
