If WA were to be a country in its own right, it would be in the world’s top 10 for size. Western Australia is Australia's largest state, with a total land area of 2,529,875 square kilometres (976,790 sq mi), and the second-largest country subdivision in the world, surpassed only by Russia's Sakha Republic. The state has about 2.6 million inhabitants – around 11% of the national total – of whom the vast majority (92%) live in the south-west corner, 73% of the population living in the Perth area, leaving the remainder of the state sparsely populated. 2. In 1933, Western Australians voted overwhelmingly to secede from the Commonwealth. While 68 percent of people voted for secession, the Commonwealth refused the request and WA remained part of Australia. 3. Perth (WA’s capital) is the most isolated city in the world, with its closest city being Adelaide and that’s over 2,200 km away. Perth is closer to Singapore and Jakarta than it is to Canberra. 4. Madness, mutiny and murder. It might sound like the plot of an implausible Hollywood blockbuster, but the story of the Batavia is frighteningly real. In 1629, the ship struck a reef 40 kilometres off the coast of WA – and that’s where the terrible tale began. 5. Perth’s very own Kings Park is the largest city park in the world. Yes, at 400ha (988 acres) it is larger than Central Park in New York . Here you can wander and take in spectacular views of the Swan River, overlooking Elizabeth Quay, the city skyline and Darling Ranges. There are bush trails, manicured gardens and Australia’s largest display of wildflowers throughout the Botanic Gardens. 6. The Pinnacles is two hours north of Perth in the Nambung National Park. There you will see the ancient desert sculptures, where the desert landscape is transformed with yellow limestone formations up to 5 metres tall rising out of the sand dunes. 7. Western Australia has its fair share of natural resources and a booming mining industry. Located in the remote Kimberley region is Argyle Diamond Mine, the largest diamond producer in the world (by volume) and the only known significant source of pink and red diamonds. The Kimberley coast is also home to Australia’s largest producer of pearls. Two of the world’s largest producers of gold are located in Western Australia. The largest open cut mine until 2016 is the Super Pit at Kalgoorlie gold mine. The oblong pit is 3.5km long and 1.5km wide but a massive 570 metres deep making it visible from space. No wonder Perth is home to the highest per capita of self made millionaires.

What you didn't know about Christmas Island

The Territory of Christmas Island is an Australian external territory comprising the island of the same name. Christmas Island is located in the Indian Ocean, around 350 kilometres (220 mi) south of Java and Sumatra and around 1,550 kilometres (960 mi) north-west of the closest point on the Australian mainland. It has an area of 135 square kilometres. 2. The first European to sight the island was Richard Rowe of the Thomas in 1615. The island was later named on Christmas Day (25 December) 1643 by Captain William Mynors, but only settled in the late 19th century. Its geographic isolation and history of minimal human disturbance has led to a high level of endemism among its flora and fauna, which is of interest to scientists and naturalists. The majority (63 percent) of the island is included in the Christmas Island National Park, which features several areas of primary monsoonal forest. 3. It has been settled only since the 1880s; for much of the period since then it was administered by the Straits Settlement (Singapore), with inclusion as an Australian territory only since 1958. Phosphate mining was the reason for its settlement, and has persisted as the main (sometimes only) industry ever since, leading to loss of about 25% of the Island’s rainforest area. 4. Flying Fish Cove is the capital city and main settlement of Australia's Christmas Island. Although it was originally named after British survey-ship Flying-Fish, many maps simply label it “The Settlement”. It was the first British settlement on the island, established in 1888. 5. Most of its reptiles, native mammals, and terrestrial birds occur (or occurred) nowhere else; and nearly 200 invertebrate species are considered endemic. There are very few areas in Australia (indeed, in the world) that can match such narrow endemism. The endemic Red Crab is the most conspicuous, with a population of at least 40 million. It is the Island’s ecological lynchpin, engineering the forest structure and productivity. It is everywhere; but spectacularly so in its annual breeding migration from forest to sea, when the forest floor, roads and gardens become moving masses of crab: one of the world’s great animal migrations. 6. From the outbreak of the South-East Asian theatre of World War II in December 1941, Christmas Island was a target for Japanese occupation because of its rich phosphate deposits. 7. From the late 1980s and early 1990s, boats carrying asylum seekers, mainly departing from Indonesia, began landing on the island. In 2001, Christmas Island was the site of the Tampa controversy, in which the Australian government stopped a Norwegian ship, MV Tampa, from disembarking 438 rescued asylum-seekers. The ensuing standoff and the associated political reactions in Australia were a major issue in the 2001 Australian federal election.

7 Awesome Facts about Victoria, Australia

In 1788, the entire Australian continent was claimed by the British. The area around the Sullivan Bay was the first settlement created in 1803. The Port Phillip District established in 1836 covered the present day Victoria. In 1851, Victoria was granted with a new status as a separate colony. In 1855, it was granted as self-government. 2. After gold was discovered in Victoria in 1851, people from all over the world moved to the state, hoping to become rich in the gold rush. Victoria’s population expanded from 76,000 in 1851 to 540,000 in 1861. The only armed civil rebellion in Australia’s history – the Eureka Stockade – took place in Ballarat, Victoria, on December 3rd 1854. Protests about the high license fees people had to pay in order to dig for gold culminated in a battle between the gold miners and troops in which 34 people died. 3. Melbourne is the state capital of Victoria and the second-most populous city in Australia and Oceania. During the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s, it was transformed into one of the world's largest and wealthiest cities. After the federation of Australia in 1901, it served as the nation's interim seat of government until 1927. By the time of the Federation of Australia in 1901, Melbourne had become the largest city and leading financial centre in Australasia. Before Melbourne was called Melbourne, it was named Batmania after John Batman, a colonist farmer from Tasmania who landed in Port Philip Bay in May 1835. 4. In 1855 Melbourne stonemasons won the right to the world's first Eight Hour Day, which became a symbol of the rights of workers to improve their working conditions: forming the basis of Australia's reputation as a "workingman's paradise". 5. One of Victoria’s most exciting natural icons is the Great Ocean Road. The Great Ocean Road is a 243 km stretch of National Heritage listed road that runs along Victoria’s coastline from Torquay to Warrnambool. It offers fantastic surf, rainforests and wildlife, as well as remarkable sites such as the Twelve Apostles. The Twelve Apostles rise from the ocean along a rugged section of coastline where the limestone cliffs have been worn away by powerful waves to form canyons, arches and pillars of rock. 6. Victorian scientist Dr David Warren was the first person to think of and develop the Black Box flight recorder. Fitted to all Australian airliners, it records the voices and instrument readings in the cockpit of an aeroplane, providing valuable information in air crash investigations. 7. Melbourne’s well-known tramway system has 244 km of track and more than 450 trams. It is the fourth largest tramway system in the world and the largest outside of Europe.

Mongolia's Mining Boom (2012)

Australian miner Rio Tinto is about to open one of the biggest copper mines on the planet in Mongolia, which will soon account for more than 30% of the country's entire GDP. "Some of the optimistic geologists we have say that this business could run for up to 100 years", Cameron McRae from Rio Tinto explains. But the company only cedes the Mongolian government a 34% stake, provoking worries about where the benefits of Mongolia's resource wealth will go. There's concerns the government is ill-equipped to strike complex mining deals in the national interest. "The deal is a financial transaction and whether it's really beneficial to Mongolia, I have many doubts about that", argues Dorjdari from the Responsible Mining Initiative. Environmentalists also worry that the mining push has come so fast and so aggressively that proper checks and balances are not in place. "Most tourists come to Mongolia because they want to see that pristine open space blue sky, but what if we couldn't offer it anymore?"

It is the world's largest refiner of bauxite and the fourth largest producer of primary aluminium. It is the largest producer of gem and industrial diamonds, lead and tantalum, and the mineral sands ilmenite, rutile and zircon. It is the fifth largest producer and largest exporter of black coal and the second largest producer of zinc, the third largest producer of gold, iron ore and manganese ore and the fourth largest producer of nickel. It is the fifth largest producer of copper and silver. It has the world's largest resources of low-cost uranium. Australia also has the potential to remain among the world's leading mineral nations. New deposits have been discovered and developed as demand for mineral products grows, but the minerals industry has to continue to find and develop more mineral deposits to meet the demand for its products and replace worked out mines. Many Australians believe huge areas of the continent are devoted to mining when in fact less than 0.02 per cent of Australia is affected by mining. Although this disturbance is small when compared with that caused by other activities such as real estate development, farming and grazing, road construction and the urban sprawl, the minerals industry must responsibly manage the environment in which it operates. Australians enjoy one of the highest living standards in the world and part of the reason is that it is a major trading nation. The minerals industry is one of the biggest contributors to Australia's export trade.Technology in Australia Australia is known for adopting new technologies at a faster rate than most other countries in the world; for example, it entered the new millennium with one of the highest rates of internet access in the world. Scientists and researchers from Australia have been responsible for many major breakthroughs and technological developments around the world. In fact, Australia boasts eights Nobel Prize recipients—not bad for a country with a population of about 19 million. The growth of technology in Australia has had several important results; it has increased opportunities for innovation and design; helped various industries make improvements in their already existing establishments, and helped them to improve the quality of their goods. The technology growth has also helped to improve Australia’s economy, as it is now one of the leading countries in the world for importing and exporting goods.

The Future of Trucking
Imagining the future of the vast trucking industry that will become autonomous in the coming years. Subscribe for our newest TDC original mini-documentary: http://bit.ly/2pu8oNz Video by Bryce Plank and Robin West. More information on this topic: The future of trucking: http://tcrn.ch/2f1cx2Z http://bit.ly/2pyRU2K Tesla's electric truck: http://bit.ly/2nKwlQi Platooning: http://bit.ly/2eg8UKi Truckers discuss the future of trucking: http://bit.ly/2oG2MM9 Script: The semi-truck. Our modern lives are completely dependent on them. Look around you. Every object you see probably traveled on at least one big rig. Here in America, truckers make up 2% of the workforce. But with multiple game-changing technologies converging simultaneously — and the relentlessness of the hyper-competitive global marketplace — the industry will be revolutionized within the next two decades. This is an examination of the future of trucking. Before we get into the technology that will turn it all upside-down, we must first understand the way this extremely fragmented industry works now. To the numbers! There are about 3 million drivers for 2.5 million trucks in the US. Those trucks are owned by 532,000 carrier companies, but 90% of these fleets have fewer than six trucks—and half of all carriers are single individuals who own and operate their own rig. Then you have the middlemen, the freight brokers. These 13,000 companies play matchmaker between the manufacturers and wholesalers (who are trying to get their goods to market) and the retailers (who make the final sale to the consumer). Because this industry is so splintered, there aren’t universal software systems tying it all together. In fact, 67% of shippers don’t use software at all and rely solely on paper records—in 2017! This creates tremendous inefficiency. When every piece of information has to be communicated through human interactions, drivers are frequently forced to wait hours to book or pick-up a load. And sometimes they just don’t, an estimated 20% of trucks on the road are empty. To solve these problems, investors are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on startups competing to develop the silver bullet, a software layer that can be used by every segment of the industry. Another area ripe for modernization is how trucks are powered. Today, medium and heavy duty trucks account for 6% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced in America. To their credit, companies like Walmart are looking to transition to fleets powered by cleaner natural gas, the bridge fuel America has embraced to transition to renewables. That’s where Tesla comes in. Elon Musk, CEO of the electric car manufacturer, plans to unveil an electric-powered semi-truck in the next six months. Battery range will be the biggest obstacle to the widespread adoption of electric trucks as Tesla’s pack will probably only have a 200-300 mile range. The other challenge will be having enough charging stations — and enough power available at each station — to support fleets of Tesla trucks. The Nikola One attempts to overcome these limitations. This gorgeous, hydrogen fuel cell truck will have a range up to 1,200 miles. The young company plans to begin leasing their trucks by 2020 for about $6,000 a month — including the cost of fuel — but it will first need to build a network of about 400 charging stations throughout the country. Cutting the emissions of semi-trucks is great for the environment, but the real cost-saving opportunity lies in cutting out the drivers. It’s been more than a year now since six convoys of semi-autonomous “smart” trucks arrived at the Netherlands port city of Rotterdam after leaving factories from as far away as Sweden and Southern Germany. That experiment relied on a system called platooning, a semi-autonomous feature allowing trucks to find each other, link up, and draft to cut down on wind drag, saving energy—just like in NASCAR or the Tour de France. And in October, a self-driving truck completed the first commercial shipment by an autonomous vehicle, delivering a load of Budweiser more than 120 miles across Colorado. A human got the truck on the highway and engaged the autonomous system, then climbed out of the driver’s seat. That truck was made by Otto motors, which was recently acquired by Uber. And dozens of massive, 240-ton trucks are already being used in Australian mines. So that’s the near-future we’ll see in the next 10 years: fleets of driverless trucks. Some will be designed to be autonomous, while others will have the system installed later. Many will be electric, and nearly all will be connected to efficient networks that are not slowed down by frequent human input.

Australia's biodiversity: mining
Mining occurs throughout Australia, but its direct impacts on biodiversity are relatively limited compared with other major land uses because the areas affected are generally small. Dr Alan Andersen talks about the main impacts of mining on biodiversity and how these can be appropriately managed through processes like strategic regional assessments, use of bioindicators in rehabilitation, and biodiversity offsets.

Spain's Plan to Quit the Coal Industry Explained | NowThis World
Climate change is happening. And one industry in particular will have to undergo a huge transformation and all but disappear by 2050…. The coal industry. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2TVSSsk But what does this mean for that industry and governments around the world? And what about the workers the coal industry employs? We’re taking a look at the steps one country is taking to prepare for a clean energy economy, while trying to make sure no one gets left behind. To avoid the most devastating consequences of climate change, a United Nations panel of scientists has recently warned that drastic action is required around the world. In Spain. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez government's priorities was taking immediate action to address climate change. That meant drastic action to limit Spain’s coal industry. The country had to comply with a European Union directive that said that public funds could no longer be used to keep unprofitable coal mines open. This meant that those mines had to be shut down by the end of 2018. And that is exactly what happened. By December of 2018, roughly three out of four of Spain’s coal miners clocked out of work for the last time. Spain’s socialist government cut a deal with several affiliated miner’s unions, referred to as the ‘Just Transition’ deal.” So we’re taking a look at the innovative steps Spain is taking to prepare for a clean energy economy, while trying to make sure no one gets left behind.

Australia: A Continent Adrift | Full Documentary
▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries "Australia. A Continent Adrift" full documentary in which we discover how animals that populated this part of the supercontinent Gondwana have evolved as to what the Australian continent adrift in the ocean. The story of the inhabitants of this Terra Australis can be traced back to the distant days when all the continents of the southern hemisphere were one. The world was then a warmer, and more humid place, in which enormous dinosaurs ruled over a zoology in permanent evolution. The remains of that universal jungle can still be seen in the north east of Australia, and are now home to the descendents of the long extinct dinosaurs. The birds are the most numerous species in this green, suffocatingly humid world. Their ability to fly meant they were not condemned to isolation like the land creatures of Australia, and competition with the species from the rest of the world produced new types of bird, which then came to these Jurassic forests, and stayed forever. In those distant forests, one hundred million years ago, there lived different types of mammals who sought to ensure their survival by using different means of reproduction. The monotremes, the oldest of all, were mammals, but laid eggs; the eutherians gave birth to completely developed young; and the marsupials, somewhere between these two extremes, completed their development outside the mother’s body. The jungles of South America were, like those of Australia, once part of Gondwana. Back then, monotremes, marsupials and eutherians coexisted in the primeval forests. But the last of these three, little by little, gained ground, as their new evolutionary prototypes improved. The new mammals not only had placentas, they were also more intelligent, and they took over the majority of the habitats of the monotremes and the marsupials. But defeat was not quite as absolute as people tend to think. Because, in the South American night, old ghosts from Gondwana still hide. Everything began with a great journey across the Indian Ocean, millions of years ago. This was just the beginning of the great marsupial adventure, a period of enormous changes. On its journey northwards, Australia became increasingly warm, and its jungles became smaller. The climate of the island slowly changed. The plants had to adapt or die. Each change in the climate meant a change in the vegetation, and each one of these was followed by an endless number of adaptations by the animals. And Australia continued moving north on its slow journey across the Indian Ocean. The closer it came to the Tropic of Capricorn, the more temperate the climate became. Where once there had been jungle, vast open plains appeared The pasture took over the land, and new colonists appeared, some of them close relatives of those who still now live hidden in the last remaining jungles of Australia. The trees of the jungle were always a place of refuge and expansion for the marsupials. As foliage became sparser, due to climate warming, they were forced to colonise the plains and grasslands. The koala was able to colonise the eucalyptus forests thanks to an adaptation which would seem impossible – the ability to feed on its leaves. The leaves of the eucalyptus tree are a combination of low-quality food, indigestible material, and active poisons. Any animal that could adapt and make use of these leaves would have absolutely no competitors. And that is precisely what the koala did. The koala is an example of the incredible versatility of adaptation of the marsupial mammals of Australia. The duckbill platypus is one of the three species of monotremes mammals that lay eggs, a shy animal which lives in some rivers in the east of Australia. The other two are echidnas the long-snouted variety in New Guinea, and this one, the short-snouted variety, which can be found throughout Australia. Australia continues on its slow drift northwards, at a speed of six centimetres a year. At present, a narrow strait is all that separates the fauna of the two continents. But what will happen when the animals of Asia and Oceanía come into direct contact? There may well be enormous upheavals in the uncertain future of this continent. It is easy to image that the evolution of its landscapes and animals will undergo far-reaching changes. But, probably, when new, specialised creatures adapt to the unique conditions of these forests or deserts, causing many of the evolutionary prototypes that now dominate Australia to die out, in the farthest depths of the jungle, with their pacific and archaic way of life, there will continue to be echidnas and duckbill platypuses. And, as in Gondwana in the distant past, there will continue to be mammals who lay eggs.

A Man Discovered This Dinosaur Fossil In An Old Mine, And What He Found Would Stun Paleontologists
Please do not forget to visit the site http://scribol.com ►Robert Clark/National Geographic https://goo.gl/CU5LnK contact us at:[email protected] http://watchjojo.com ************************************************************** Amidst the strange industrial landscape of Canada’s Athabasca oil sands, Shawn Funk is hard at work. At the controls of his excavator, he digs down through ancient layers, hoping to reach the precious bitumen beneath. But when his bucket strikes something hard, he makes a find that’s actually far, far more valuable. On March 21, 2011, Funk was on duty at Millennium Mine, a facility near Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada. Operated by Canadian energy company Suncor, the mine is one of several built to capitalize on the deposits in the Athabasca oil sands. Covering some 54,000 square miles around Fort McMurray, these sands contain bitumen – effectively, extra-heavy oil. The deposits are made of the remains of animals and plants that lived over 100 million years ago. Under steady heat and intense pressure, these remains have been converted into bitumen. But to Funk and his colleagues, the deposits of course bear little resemblance to the incredible creatures they once were. Anyhow, early in the afternoon of that day something spectacular would happen. After spending hours digging for bitumen, the bucket of Funk’s excavator struck something solid under the earth. Then, as he watched, a series of strangely colored objects fell out onto the ground below. Funk therefore grabbed his supervisor, Mike Gratton, and the pair began to investigate what he had found. Picking up one of the lumps, they turned it over to reveal a bizarre pattern. Set into the gray rock was a series of brown circles, arranged neatly in rows. Funk and Gratton had no idea what they were looking at, though. Were the shapes just peculiar pieces of fossilized wood – or could they be something else entirely? The pair quickly realized that they needed to get an expert in to take a look at their discovery, so they duly contacted the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Drumheller, Alberta. Opened in 1985, the museum is a hub of research in an area that has seen hundreds of dinosaur fossils discovered over the years. Soon, then, curator Donald Henderson and museum technician Darren Tanke were on a plane headed for Fort McMurray. And when they arrived, they realized that it wasn’t just a pile of strange rocks that Funk had stumbled upon. In fact, it would turn out to be one of the most fascinating dinosaur fossils that they had ever discovered. The process of removing the fossils from Millennium Mine was, though, a long and arduous one. For many hours, the teams from Suncor and the museum worked away until the rock was whittled down to a single 15,000-pound piece. Then they prepared to lift it out of the mine. However, disaster struck. The fossil was too fragile to bear its own weight, and it broke into several pieces in mid-air. So while Henderson and Tanke were desperate to get the dinosaur remains back to the museum, they also didn’t want to damage the amazing find further. Eventually, then, the broken sections were encased in plaster of Paris and transported to Drumheller, some 420 miles away – and fortunately without further incident. Finally safe at the museum, the discovery was handed over to Mark Mitchell, a fossil preparer. And over the next five years Mitchell would spend some 7,000 hours painstakingly preparing the fossil for it to take center stage in a new exhibition. As he worked, meanwhile, researchers were able to take a closer look at the fascinating find. ************************************************************** ►Image credits: Image: Robert Clark/National Geographic https://goo.gl/CU5LnK Image: Beautiful Destruction https://goo.gl/Bht1Em Image: TastyCakes https://goo.gl/pP7uYY Image: Howl Arts Collective https://goo.gl/EJAoGo Image: National Geographic https://goo.gl/N7W6LE Image: Yetiwriter https://goo.gl/RMHEUw Image: Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Image: Royal Tyrrell Museum via MailOnline Image: R Lull https://goo.gl/iQ7aZp mage: Instagram/royaltyrrell https://goo.gl/F5UYCY Image: Facebook/Priti Obhrai-Martin https://goo.gl/AJkA8y Image: Machairo https://goo.gl/xoj2nM ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com ►reference:https://goo.gl/hZYsSA #watchjojo

This is our story - Richard Denniss
Australian economist, Dr Richard Denniss, believes the coal boom is very good news for the coal industry but really bad news for the manufacturing sector, tourism and agriculture. While it's been billed as the financial saviour of the nation, Dr Denniss reminds us that the "economy" is something that needs to work for over 22 million Australians and over a million businesses. So which bits of the economy is the coal boom good for? Eighty-three per cent of coal industry is foreign owned, so the profits from this boom are headed overseas. There are deals being done to ensure foreign workers get employed in mining in Western Australia and Queensland. Locally, workers that are flown in and flown out of mining towns get such big wages that local businesses, manufacturing industries, and community building services such as teaching, nursing and policing can't compete, and are struggling to find workers. Dr Denniss reminds us of the most basic principle in all good economies; don't put all your eggs in one basket "Last year 63 per cent of all investment went into the mining industry. But the mining industry only employs two per cent of our workforce. So we're putting our whole future faith in the fact that this mining boom is going to continue, so we've put all our eggs in one basket." "Booms end," says Denniss. "That's why it's risky to hollow out our manufacturing industry, hollow out our communities, and literally bet the country on the mining boom going forever. History tells us that booms are fun on the way up but no fun on the way down."

The Truth About Ecstasy
High Society is a new VICE documentary series about drugs in the UK. British people statistically take more MDMA in one session than any other country on the planet. And not just a little bit more: on average, Brits take 420 milligrams per session. To put that in perspective, Germans, the same people who invented minimal techno and nightclubs that stay open for 60 hours – take only 200 milligrams. It’s still one of the safest drugs to take, but last year, ecstasy-related deaths reached their highest level in a decade, and now it’s back in the headlines. Some people say it’s drug dealers’ responsibility for selling pills that are dangerously strong and cut with adulterants. Other people point to the government, who have failed to reduce the supply of ecstasy and are refusing to embrace harm reduction strategies that have worked in Europe. In this episode of High Society, we find out what’s making ecstasy so dangerous again, and how that danger can be reduced.

Mustaq Maqbool - This is our story - TV Ad
Every day Mustaq Maqbool gets to "play with big boys toys," as he calls them. For years he dreamed about becoming a mechanic so he could work on these enormous machines - and with perseverance his dreams have come true. But possibly the best thing about his job is that Mustaq can be very much a part of the mining industry and still able to live and work in Sydney, not far from home. Darren Tasker, Chief Operating Officer at WestTrac says that work in the mining industry "isn't always on the doorstep of mining sites." Increasingly, the industry caters for people who want to live and work in a large city. Mustaq's motivation for doing so is pure and simple: his family. He and his wife, Janifa, have three children aged three, four and six. "I don't want to miss any day seeing my children grow up," he says. This hard-working Aussie also supports his wife who is a fulltime university student, as well as his parents who live with the family in their Hebersham home, in Western Sydney. After finishing school Mustaq worked odd jobs while looking for an apprenticeship. In 2001, that led him to Sydney looking for career opportunities. He eventually found work as a security officer where he watched over the WesTrac site at Wetherill Park. But after seeing the huge mining equipment, deep down Mustaq wanted to "be on the other side of the fence." His opportunity arose when a role opened up in the workshop. He applied for the position internally and was successful. WestTrac then trained Mustaq to become a qualified plant mechanic. In fact, WesTrac has the largest apprentice intake outside of the local government sphere. As Darren Tasker says, "We went down the path of becoming a registered training organization so we could develop our own content and people." That kind of faith in the mining industry is exactly why WesTrac have built a brand new facility, which sets up the company and their employees well into the future. "We have confidence in the industry to the point where we've been able to increase our numbers to keep up with opportunities as they're presented." Mustaq's story is not uncommon. Australian Mining is investing in the skills of Aussies all throughout the country -- including our cities. Darren says, "He's had the opportunities he's had is because of his strong work ethic and the fact he's always got a smile on his face." This smile is never more apparent than when Mustaq's at home with his family, "I get all the benefits of working on a mine site, but I can come home, where I want to be."

FIRST LOOK Inside the FEDERAL RESERVE, USD, CASH, GOLD monetary SYSTEM - Americas Money Vault, National Geographic Full Episode PART 1 For the first time, National Geographic takes you inside the heart of the money machine to places that you're not allowed to bring a camera ...straight into the vaults of some of the world's largest stashes of what you want, need and bust your butt to get: Money. Hidden deep under the streets of New York City, hundreds of billion dollars in gold bars are tucked away in a bunker that is anchored to the bedrock of Manhattan Island itself. In the latest in a string of high-profile hacking disclosures, the Federal Reserve confirmed on Wednesday that one of its websites was broken into by cyber hackers in a breach that reportedly leaked the contact information of thousands of bankers. While the central bank said the incident didn't "affect critical operations" of the Federal Reserve System, the disclosure is sure to fuel concerns about the cyber security of government websites and critical financial infrastructure. The Fed hack appears to be tied to an Anonymous group that published on Twitter the credentials of more than 4,000 commercial bankers early Monday morning. The group, Operation Last Resort, said it received the documents "via the FED." Call it the Rick Perry gold rush: The governor wants to bring the state's gold reserves back from a New York vault to Texas. And he may have legislative support to do it. Freshman Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, is carrying a bill that would establish the Texas Bullion Depository, a secure state-based bank to house $1 billion worth of gold bars owned by the University of Texas Investment Management Co., or UTIMCO, and stored by the Federal Reserve. "If you think gold is a hedge, or a protection, you always want it as close to the individual and the entity as possible," Paul told The Texas Tribune on Thursday. "Texas is better served if it knows exactly where the gold is rather than depending on the security of the Federal Reserve." Sadly, most Americans don't even realize that a private banking cartel has a monopoly over all money creation in this country. In recent years they have abused this power by wildly printing money ("quantitative easing"), and by making more than 16 trillion dollars in secret loans to their friends during the last financial crisis. "Neither the Treasury Department nor the Federal Reserve believes that the law can or should be used to facilitate the production of platinum coins for the purpose of avoiding an increase in the debt limit" remaining alternative to Congress raising the nation's borrowing limit, which would utilize a loophole in federal law to mint a $1 trillion coin to be deposited in the Federal Reserve and ensure the federal government could pay all bills and debt obligations. gold, money, cash fed, "federal reserve" ,bank ,banking ,bankers ,system, matrix ,monetary ,vault, "armored vehicle", police, cops, control, mafia, episode, tv, show, america ,u.s, "united states", american, nyc, "new york" ,"new york city" ,"gold bullion" ,"scrap gold", "buy gold", "sell gold" ,"silver coins" ,"silver bullion", "u.s. mint" ,inside, "first look" ,usd ,dollar ,crash, crisis, trust, etf, "paper gold" ,stocks, trading, investment, investing, future, world, global, supply, debt, 2013, forces, vault ,control, illuminati, new world order ,alex jones, infowars, gerald celente, david icke ,farrakhan ,lindsey williams, tvfirst123 You can thank the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing for the incredible bull market that we have seen in recent months. When the Federal Reserve does more "quantitative easing", it is the financial markets that benefit the most. The Dow and the S&P 500 have both hit levels not seen since 2007 this month, and many analysts are projecting that 2013 will be a banner year for stocks. But is a rising stock market really a sign that the overall economy is rapidly improving as many are suggesting? Of course not. Just because the Federal Reserve has inflated another false stock market bubble Barack Obama has been president, 40 percent of all American workers are making $20,000 a year or less, median household income has declined for four years in a row, and poverty in the United States is absolutely exploding. So quantitative easing has definitely not made things better for the middle class. But all of the money printing that the Fed has been doing has worked out wonderfully for Wall Street. Profits are soaring at Goldman Sachs and luxury estates in the Hamptons are selling briskly. Unfortunately, this is how things work in America these days. Our "leaders" seem far more concerned with the welfare of Wall Street than they do about the welfare of the American people. When things get rocky, their first priority always seems to be to do whatever it takes to pump up the financial markets Category Entertainment License Standard YouTube License

Rebecca Pickering - This is our story - TV version
Australian mining means a lot to Australia. It supports our country, provides thousands of jobs - and is filled with great people. This is Rebecca Pickering's story. See more stories at: ‪http://www.thisisourstory.com.au/‬ --- As Rebecca Pickering says, "I'm a mining girl". For Rebecca, and many women like her, the opportunities in the mining industry are plentiful. In fact, at only 28 she's already enjoyed a range of different roles in various fields. Rebecca's story started in Collie, where her Dad was an operator at the mine. Driven by a childhood fascination with the industry she secured a scholarship to study metallurgy at university in Perth. Four years ago she got a job with Rio Tinto at the Argyle mine - the world's largest producer of coloured diamonds. As a Superintendent of the diamond recovery process , Rebecca was part of a multi-disciplinary team of around 10 people, including fitters, electricians and metallurgists. Their jobs involve all aspects of the final stages of extracting the diamonds before they began the next part of their journey as one of Australia's finest exports and the best in their class. When she started out in the mining industry, Rebecca's Dad gave her some great advice, "never ask anyone to do something you wouldn't do yourself". This was valuable advice and has served Rebecca well as she develops and expands her experiences in the mining industry. Today Rebecca has a planning role as an analyst at Rio Tinto in Perth, where her focus has shifted from diamonds to iron ore - a different commodity with vastly different challenges. "I really like this industry, it's not an easy one, but it's challenging. I've been grateful for the opportunities to expand my expertise." As Rebecca's horizons have broadened she reflects on how the benefits of mining extend into the broader community. Particularly when she lived in the the beautiful Kununurra region with her boyfriend Tim, a voluntary ambulance officer - an organisation Rebecca was also involved with. "It's great to see how mining helps everyone. Not just people who work in the industry but the community as a whole". Rebecca, like many women who have taken on the challenges of working in the Australian mining industry, is confident that this career path has no limits for those who are prepared to work for them. "You never know what the future holds, it's so exciting" says Rebecca .

Jacqui Katona entering the building Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia - FILE 17. Various shots of the Jabiluka site, with sacred cliffs 18. Various aerial shots the Ranger Uranium mine, 20 km from Jabiluka STORYLINE: Environmental protestors have been demonstrating outside the Annual General Meeting of Rio Tinto, the company which plans to mine uranium from a site inside one of Australia's most prized national parks for power stations across Europe. Friends of the Earth campaigners and aboriginal rights campaigners led the protest outside the meeting in London on Thursday. The campaigners were there to raise concerns about plans for a gigantic uranium mine on Aboriginal land at Jabiluka in the Kakadu National Park, Australia. Jabiluka is in the Alligator rivers region of the Northern Territory, about 30 km east of Darwin. The mine site is surrounded by the Kakadu National Park, which is world heritage listed and is on land has been traditionally owned by the Mirrar Aboriginal people. The Aboriginal Mirrar people regard Jabiluka as their ancestral home and a sacred site. The Mirrar have led opposition to the development of Jabiluka, which has resulted in major protests all over Australia and over 500 arrests They point to the damage done by the Ranger mine, which they say has left 20 million tonnes of tailings (a radioactive mining by product) in spoil heaps around its operations. Rio Tinto inherited the Jabiluka development following their takeover of Australian mining company North Limited last year. Likely buyers would include French nuclear utility Cogema.

Spaniards love physical contact… and don’t shy away from applying it liberally :) 4:04 Spaniards love a good eye-locked gaze.
