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.

Children in care management system to cost $229m
I am in total agreement with you, Janet.
We need 24/7 youth centers that gives children safety, food, people to interact with.
If social workers fear for their jobs, they are wrong.
Volunteers will need them to run the centres.

Ken and Lauren: “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.”
I am broke, run out of credits on my numerous credit cards, my house is mortgaged to the hilt, can I still go shopping for Christmas?
Government is leader; leaders supposedly show example. Therefore, what is good for you is good for me.

Yes Rosalie , we need a curfew and a refuge center for the children without a caring household.


Human rights, centre stage
Congratulations to all recipients, rewards well merited.
However I agree with John

Justice is one of the most important moral and political concepts.
Latin socius means “friend.” A friend is a person who we know well and who we like a lot, but who is usually not a member of our family.
So we can wish justice even if it is not for our friends.
Social justice is a political and philosophical concept which holds that all people should have equal access to wealth, health, well being, justice and opportunity.
We have all the same rights, that is JUSTE.

Cradle! Why such name? The kids on the street, for the majority, are not babies. Many have been initiated which means they are adult members of the community.
The ages of the person being initiated varies between language groups, but usually occur between the ages of 10 and 16 years.
