CHRONIC! Australia to Legalise Cannabis

Posted: October 20th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Favorite New Thought, From The Web | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on CHRONIC! Australia to Legalise Cannabis

CHRONIC! Australia to Legalise CannabisAustralia’s Government has announced it will legalise the growing of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Health Minister Sussan Ley says the Government wants to give people suffering from debilitating illnesses access to all of the most effective medical treatments, including medical cannabis.

The minister said she had been moved by stories of people who get relief from the currently restricted drug, sometimes legally imported but not always. However, Ms Ley said the legalisation was only about medicinal cannabis, not recreational use.

“This is not a debate about legalisation of cannabis. This is not about illicit drugs. This is not a product you smoke. This has nothing to do with that,” Ms Ley said. “Most commonly the product is an oil or a tincture that you put on your skin.”

A progressive government in Victoria looks to have that state as the nation’s first onboard, the state Government plans to embark on a cannabis cultivation trial, based on the recommendations of a report by the Victorian Law Reform Commission :: Read the full article »»»»


Australian Government Considers Large Scale Roll-back of Pension Access

Posted: April 5th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Socially Engineered | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on Australian Government Considers Large Scale Roll-back of Pension Access

Australian Government Indicates Large Scale Roll-back of Pension AccessIn its hunt for savings, the Australian Government is “seriously considering” a proposal to tighten the assets test for retirees, shaving hundred of millions off the ballooning cost of the pension system.

At the moment, retired couples who own their home, and with other assets up to $1.1 million still qualify for a part pension, a position many consider untenable. The Social Services Minister Scott Morrison has strongly indicated he will look at scaling back access to the pension for wealthy Australians as an alternative to the Government’s current plan to change the rate of indexation.

In the backflip – the government pledged, via last years budget, to decouple pension rises from the ‘average (male) earnings’, instead linking them to the rate of inflation, saving the government almost $450 million a year – cutting into pension payments by as much as $80 a week – might get the boot?

Social Services Minister Scott Morrison said last week that he wanted “modest, incremental change” to the pension system, though he is still standing by last year’s budget measure and an attempt to raise the pension age to 70 – which has also stalled in the Senate :: Read the full article »»»»

Finland Calls Finish to Cursive Hand Writing Lessons in Classrooms

Finland is scrapping cursive writing lessons in schools from next year and will instead teach children how to type, raising questions for the future of handwriting in Australian classrooms.

The country’s board of education said learning to type was “more relevant to everyday life”, a skill that Australian experts agreed was a better use of school time. Since implementing education reforms 40 years ago, Finland’s school system has consistently come at the top for the international rankings for education systems.

Finnish children don’t start school until they’re 7, exams don’t kickoff until they’re into their teens – going unmeasured for the first 6 years of education – There is only 1 mandatory standardised test – taken at 16 yo – and the difference between the weakest and strongest student is the lowest on the planet. So should we be taking notice? :: Read the full article »»»»
