Comment on Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet by Evelyne Roullet.

Remembering and honouring our dead takes more than flags and poppies once or twice a year.
While we come together to remember fallen soldiers, we should reflect on the fact they died in vain. They went selflessly. They fought bravely. They sacrificed nobly for us to live in peace.
They lived in the best traditions of duty, honour and country, and as long as we bicker and fight for small things they died for nothing and we should be ashamed.

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet
Yes Steve, and I am not really happy about it: I signed it, believing it was all, but horror, my French relatives seen it on Facebook! And signed thinking to do me a favour! I have not put it on Facebook so who has?

Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Because I am very curious about all sorts of statistics I rang the museum and asked how those figures are created.
I was told: “We simply ask people if they are locals or visitors.”
Interesting, as I have never been asked.

Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Overseas 975; Alice Springs 3279; domestic tourists 1214 with “NT other” (363), Victoria (229) and NSW (225) topping the list.
How were those numbers are worked out?

Move School of the Air to Anzac High building
Great idea. Excellent for the tourists who do not have a car and or cannot afford a tour bus.

@TJ: What happens when they talk about sacred sites and cultural issues concerning the women?
In traditional Anangu society, men and women have distinct but equally important roles, performing specific tasks that benefit the whole community.
There are male sacred sites (men’s business) which are forbidden to women and women’s sacred sites (women’s business) which are forbidden to men.
National Park Management Plan 2020: The Working Together painting by Jennifer Taylor Uluru-Kata Tjuta has a central circle representing the park.
The twelve seated figures are the members of the Board of Management: Four pairs of male and female Anangu (the brown) and four Piranpa (the white).

@ Local 1: I am in total agreement. Ming Lai has a case: Employers have rights and responsibilities regarding workplace health and safety. A duty of care exists to provide for the protection to the health, safety and welfare of workers and others within a workplace.
An employers’ responsibility includes:
• Ensuring workers receive sufficient information, instruction and training in the work that the worker may be required to perform.
• Enabling the worker to perform the work without risk to the health and safety of the worker, or any other person.
