Unas de las propuestas más firmes y excitantes del nuevo rock and roll australiano son The Braves. Recogiendo las herencias de los sonidos más pantanosos e infectos del pasado y trayendolas al presente. Su último disco, "Carry on the con", esta en mi lista de mejores albumes de 2018. En el se incluye este tema, que sonó en el programa 302 de Rutas Enemigas.

New Zealand buyback of guns could cost millions

"It's better to prepare for the worst and think of the upper limit. It could cost – and this is an extravagant statement but it may well be true – it could cost up to $300 million to set what is wrong, right."
Damn, this is a costy occupation, I must admit. We'd better outsource it on the vendors, to save some of the tax money. 😉
He said the Port Arthur massacre in Australia in 1996 "should have been a signal to us. We didn't act then, either".

At the moment, it is unknown how many firearms there are in New Zealand but the number is estimated to range between 1.2 million and 1.5 million.

An Aussie travelled to the DPRK to study - now he tells of his experiences in the country


(You can see it as a propaganda move to relativise of what North Korea does to its people, about the working camps and the cult of the national leaders (which we have in the US as well), or you just try to imagine that in North Korea, they have never heard of the Guardian, let alone have a free press themselves, and so he couldn't care less about what could happen to him)
I had been interested in socialism ever since studying the Russian Revolution at high school, while my sinologist father, Chinese mother and childhood love of Japanese anime had sparked a passion for Chinese and Japanese.

After finishing my degree in Asian studies, I decided to take my interest in North Korea to postgraduate level. Pyongyang seemed a natural option, and with my North Korean friends’ help, I began my master’s in contemporary North Korean literature in April 2018.

Didgeridoo mistaken for rifle, train station locked down

Police said a passenger reported busker Will Austin behaving suspiciously on a train as he performed breathing exercises in preparation for playing his didgeridoo, a polished-wood indigenous wind instrument which he carried in a bag mistakenly described to police as a rifle case.
Paranoia, very much?
Train passenger Sarsha Vadocz said she was unconcerned at first when the train stopped for five minutes at the station. Then someone yelled there was a gunman on the train and passengers dived to the floor.

Koala breaks into car to enjoy AC, won't leave

Whitrow had left his car door open with the A.C. on for his dog to come in and out while he worked.
Apparently, the adorable marsupial needed some relief from the heat as well.

Whitrow filmed the funny encounter, which showed the koala crawling around the inside of his car for a while before finally exiting the vehicle.

Political Adviser to One Nation party James Ashby exposed to have received 20 mn Dollars from NRA to lower AUS gun laws


Before the Al Jazeera documentary was published, Mr Ashby was best known for the “Ashbygate” political scandal involving federal parliament’s former speaker of the house, Peter Slipper.

“To allow these proceedings to remain in the court would bring the administration of justice into disrepute among right-thinking people and would be manifestly unfair to Mr Slipper,” Justice Rares said in his judgment.

Last month, Mr Ashby was involved in a physical altercation with United Australia Party Brian Burston, after Mr Burston made a sexual harassment claim against Pauline Hanson.
