Greed and profit will never be friends of the Earth

The US and Australian governments say big business can be trusted on pollution and climate change. What is this? Satire? A new test for dementia?

The US and Australia have proved to be the obedient creatures of big business and all three are professional liars.
Geoff Mullen

couldn't have said it better my self. Surely there is some way to get rid of these loser out of power. How many times can they lie and get away with it?

18 per cent music - 82 per cent marketing bullshit

Consumers are not the only ones not happy with greedy record companies.
"I'm tired of them. It's 18 per cent music what we do these days and it's bloody 82 per cent marketing bullshit."
Jay Kay from Jamiroquai
"Take your greatest hits, stick it up your f---ing arse and then I shall carry on doing what I f---ing do. I can't be bothered with them. Next time I do an album, I'm gonna put it up on the internet for five f---ing dollars.''
lets hope it's with a Creative Commons license.

Yeah the Socceroos won, but your joking!

This from The sports desk shows just home much bullshit is being put out there about the Socceroos win last night.
The Socceroos' achievement tonight is sure to go down in Australian sporting folklore alongside events such as Australia II's American Cup win in 1983, Cathy Freeman's 400 metre gold and, more recently, Makybe Diva's three Melbourne Cup wins.
Reading that you would assume they won the thing, not just scraped through to qualify on penalties....... Hardly convincing. Don't get me wrong I'm glad to see that they qualified, but Joe pull your head out of Guus's arse mate, because the "football"roos qualify for the World Cup is nothing compared to the other feats you mentioned.

Jobless told they must accept work conditions

"When you boil it all away, the Government's proposals are nothing more and nothing less than an attempt to move a further proportion of the economy from the wages sector of the economy to the profit sector of the economy." Federal Labor's spokesman on industrial relations, Stephen Smith

Solar Tech

Unplugged living has interesting post regarding solar cells.
“The UCLA researchers’ cell is made of an everyday plastic layer between two conductive electrodes. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), based in Golden, Colorado, has tested it and given the cell an efficiency rating of 4.4 percent.

This means that the cell converts 4.4 percent of the sunshine that hits it into electrical energy, the highest score for any plastic solar cell so far published.“
Lets hope that some time soon they can mass produce these cells and we can actually use oil for something of use, rather then heating up our planet.

The Million Dollar Home Page

The million dollar home page, a creative way to pay your way through Uni.

Considering there are 320,300 sold at $1 per pixel, very clever idea.
