Comment on Have Minister, Tourism Central Australia acted on tragedy? by Evelyne Roullet.

I agree with you Matt, especially having worked in the tourism industry. I can say that I have heard everything when giving advises some: I am on holidays, I do what I like! I am old enough to know what to do! I never wear a hat and I am not going to start to please you! Are we in a police state that you are asking me what time I will be home?! Do you think I need so much water? You want me to wet my pants?
“The Australian Outback can seem so remote and isolated and planning your self-drive adventure requires a lot of preparation.”
This is nearly on all traveling websites.
Advice from the site of the Alice Springs Tourism Center:
1.Bushwalking
Check the length and difficulty and if walking without a guide, tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Wear protective footwear, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent, carry a map and plenty of water. When walking read maps and signs, stay on the track, behind safety barriers and away from cliff edges.
2.Dehydration and Sun Protection
Dehydration is a common condition suffered so increase your daily fluid intake to approximately one litre of water per hour. Many parks and reserves do not have a supply of drinking water so always carry water with you.
The sun in the Red Centre is strong, always wear a shirt, hat, sunglasses, and a minimum SPF 30+ sunscreen lotion.
Apply sunscreen regularly, even if cloudy, and stay out of the sun during the middle of the day when the sun is strongest.
What more do we need? We talking about adults who should know how to organise a trip in a foreign land.

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: the nays have it 
John Bell, I am certain she smiles at me, but she also cries when she looks down onto the Youth Center.
I quote Erwin Chandla “town’s kids – black and white – mingled there, became friends. This was so too for this writer’s four children raised in Alice Springs.” And I add for my four children who created great friendships there.


Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: the nays have it 
War memorial on a women’s sacred site: Does this describe the Alice Springs community? Wars kill while women bear and rear children.
May be Anzac Hill should be given back to the rightful custodians and the wars memorial shifted on the council lawns unless the Arrernte women agree that we keep the site but recognise them with a flag.


‘Dangerous, alarming’ property tax strongly opposed by council
Dear Steve, should I thank you for your long CLP propaganda speech? I will not because I respect your views.
However I would like you to explain this statement: “Without taking any responsibility for dealing with the consequences.”
I always take responsibility for my words and actions.
I am not a Green but an naturist from a long ancestry of herbalists / healers.
“Firstly under many circumstances fracking is perfectly safe!” I do not like the many circumstances which imply that in some circumstances it is unsafe as it is enough of one circumstance to stuff our water supply. Will you pay for the consequences?
Let’s talk conventional (I am for) and unconventional (I am against).
Vertical wells in some formations have been routinely fracked for decades.
Conventional reservoirs in the past were most commonly penetrated and developed with vertical and directional wells.
Conventional reservoirs typically have a hydrocarbon accumulation with a distinct oil-water or gas-water contact (due to natural segregation of these fluids via buoyancy). Historically, vertical and directional wells have been perfectly adequate for draining conventional reservoirs.
In contrast, unconventional reservoirs are many things all at the same time.
Coal-bed methane, tight-gas sandstone, ultra-deep water, drilling into high temperature / pressure reservoirs, and shale are all forms of unconventional oil and gas activities and/or production.
Shale reservoirs are most commonly penetrated and developed with horizontal wells. The hydrocarbon in unconventional reservoirs does not have an oil-water or gas-water contact per se (within a targeted shale unit, for instance).
This condition occurs because shale is so fine grained (the pores are so small) that surface tension, capillary forces, and the presence in the reservoir of mixed wettability (of the minerals and organics) yield an extremely diffuse distribution of fluids (water, oil, and gas).
Hydraulic fracturing of the shale helps to liberate the hydrocarbons from the groundmass of the shale and the length of the horizontal well makes the whole operation economically feasible!
But do not play with our water supply.

Land taxes or fracking for revenues? I choose Land Taxes!


Bailed juveniles next-door to you soon?
CAALAS, YA, CEO of OCF, YJAP.
Sound like a code or foreign language to me uneducated / uninitiated old lady.
Could we have the full name of those associations?
YA can be so many things.
Jap is an English abbreviation of the word “Japanese”.
OCF Operational Consensus Forecasts or Oversea Christian Fellowship?
I would like to understand the post. Thank you.
