@3 (Beau Ives)
Beau Ives’ disappointment that others seem not to share his beliefs in “healing crystals” or alternate medicines, incorrectly links their disbelief to his access difficulties to communities.
Whether his visit was to friends, or to conduct his alternate medicine work in these communities, is of little consequence.
Entry difficulty is due Commonwealth of Australia’s applied apartheid, segregationist policies, enforced upon these communities within land owned by Commonwealth of Australia established restricted corporate entities called ALR(NT) Land Trusts.
“Traditional Owners” are shareholders in these corporate ALR(NT) Land Trusts.
The Central Land Council acts as manager cum agent for the corporate title-holding ALR(NT) Land Trusts, and to enforce the Commonwealth of Australia’s apartheid policy.
Commonwealth policy qualifies all residents rights, even “Traditional Owners” or shareholders, on whoever may visit them, stay with them. Residents are still denied basic leases for their homes, to maintain such basic human rights abuses.
Commonwealth of Australian policy obstructs free flow of people, ideas, particularly alternate viewpoints.
Failings in communities is the direct result this Commonwealth of Australia policy.
Salil Shetty forgets the meaning of racism, or to justify his bigotry adopts the Orwellian 1984 interpretation of equality that “all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”.
Residents, families, friends, others, who retain belief in principles of equality and opportunity for all, still await our own “middle eastern spring”.
Eventually this spring shall come. Until then our closed apartheid communities continue evolving into ghettos.
For open minds, we need open communities.

Student boarding funding restored – for now
Pleased to see funding will continue to support rural and remote families able keep their children boarding at St Philip’s, and other colleges, and so receive mainstream education.
IMHO restoring level of funding is not sufficient.
It’s clear many rural and remote students grossly fail to achieve their potential.
It’s easy enough to provide schools for pre, infants and primary, however secondary education in many areas lacks population to justify secondary schools.
There exists still a failure to provide equality of opportunity in education for rural and remote families.
Alice Springs and other Schools of the Air demonstrate how improved internet enables lower cost specialist secondary educators to conduct rural and remote classes and discussions using video link with local support, but is this currently and regularly provided and used?
Education can ensure equality of opportunity.
There exists considerable room for improvement from Commonwealth, states and territories, each share responsibility for the social disease of failure to thrive in education.

Police want parents to stop youth crime

Perhaps it is time to re-read George Orwell’s books “Animal Farm” and “1984”.
I am prepared to defend the anonymous writers, many of whom am sure possess self-respect tempered by fear of revenge.
I agree it is essential to feel safe, to be able to express ourselves without fear of being judged, humiliated or discriminated against.
However many in the NT demonstrate totalitarian tendencies, with vindictive tendencies towards those who fail to agree with them.
NT politics, particularly party politics, is more like tail wagging the dog, than the dog wagging the tail.

Snouts who think their rightful place is in the trough
Are they planning any leases of new locations to the Chinese?
Perhaps forgetting the not so long ago Giles’s government diplomatic incident involving a lease which strained links between Darwin, Canberra, Washington and Beijing.

NAPLAN a flawed measurement, review needed: COGSO
Clearly Tabby Fudge does not understand the NAPLAN test.
Perhaps neither does COGSO (NT Council of Government School Organisations).
The NAPLAN test is NOT about passing or failing.
The NAPLAN has “No pass” and “No fail”.
The NAPLAN test measures where each student understands the core education principles. Those seeking grade scores for students or teachers clearly need look elsewhere.
This failing, when not addressed, reduces their capacity to learn more complex things they often are expected to learn later.
NAPLAN tests are essential to reduce student fail-to-thrive rates in NT post-primary education.
Each student needs understanding basic disciplines of literacy, numeracy and learning, their NAPLAN result is their learner education license.
NAPLAN tests confirm each understands core basics, certifies each is able to proceed to find their own way further around Australian education where they can improve themselves with further experience.
Many NT students fail their learner education license, yet are still pushed forward.
Later failure to achieve remains a foreseeable result from their failure to understand basic disciplines of literacy, numeracy and learning in Australian education.
NT’s failure to ensure these core education skills achieved ensures many students crash later due lack of core skills to understand enough to advance themselves further.

Police use drone in finding assault suspects
Even smaller drones a great tool for increased police efficiency.
Every rural NT Police stations need a drone with officers trained to use them.
