Nuke dump: What’s the rush?
Food for thought: Sydney’s Lucas Heights reactor is set to ramp up nuclear medicine production to meet world demand. Therefore creating more waste.
Lucas Heights, New South Wales, produced patient nuclear medicine. The nation’s only nuclear reactor currently produces 10,000 doses a day for 250 hospitals around the country.
Construction is underway on a new production plant which ANSTO estimated could lift production capacity of nuclear medicine to up to 13 million doses a year.
Unless with have a population growth spiralling or we all become cancer patients, why the need for increasing the doses if not for monetary gain?
ANSTO has increasing domestic and global demand for our nuclear medicines, therefore needs to increase capacity to safely manage associated by-products, need to prepare for the availability of national waste facility.

Nuke dump: What’s the rush?
@ Hal Duell: Thank you for this excellent constructive post. The Centralian Advocate is not our own, and I do not trust their information having experienced first hand how they do the news. It is a biased newspaper and do not often quotes its sources “to ensure that only waste from Australia is stored there”.
How will we do this? Were we told about the The BBC Shanghai? a cargo ship, unwanted in Indonesian waters? http://www.globalindonesianvoices.com/23422/nuclear-waste-ship-will-be-denied-entry-to-indonesian-waters/
I found those fact not by The Centralian Advocate (ah! ah!) but by reading international media http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/10/16/world/environmentalists-decry-vessels-deficiencies-aussie-bound-nuclear-waste-ship-leaves-france/#.VnHzaL85OC8

@ Jimmy Cocking: Thank you for the link. But I believe we debating for nothing, as the “for: and the anti will never agree.” I hope I will not see the day, view my advance age, where we will say: “We told you so.”

CLP would build gallery at Desert Park, not Anzac precinct
Alex the whole performance of Gunner’s government is a major political scandal.
The governor general should had sacked him longtime ago (Whitlam was dismissed for less than that).
Could some one from the party explain in details here for all to see what Gunner has achieved in his time on power? It is the right of the public and the voters.


Gunner again cites COVID for his failing to answer questions
All politicians during interviews, especially before elections, should do it hooked up to a lie detector (polygraph).
They are not 100% accurate but better than nothing.


Standoff over Anzac Oval for gallery crescendoes
Merrilyn Spencer, with due respect for your opinion, the tourists will not come to Alice only for an art gallery and cultural center.
We must offer more than that, especially when crime is rising.
The Aboriginal collection at the Vatican Museum is one of the most important outside Australia and it is the most visited at the Vatican Museum.
The Vatican Museum Indigenous collection has some of the earliest known documentations of Australian Indigenous culture.
The collection has been tallied for the first time in a recently released catalogue by Prof Mick Dodson, Katherine Aigner (editor), Senator Pat Dodson (contributing author), Craig Richie (CEO AIATSIS), Fr Nicola Mapelli (Director, Anima Mundi).
In France Quai Branly Museum has ensured Aboriginal art will have a permanent and high-profile presence in Paris by commissioning Lena Nyadby, one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, to produce a 700-square-metre work to be displayed on a section of its roof.
There are many like those all across the world, so, why come to Alice only for an art gallery?
The Taking Control of our Heritage – Indigenous Cultural Heritage Conference will provide the first opportunity for Traditional Owners and their allies to meet, discuss, and develop programs, strategies and ideas to take control of their cultural heritage in Australia. Tuesday 24th November – Thursday 26th November 2020, Melbourne, Victoria.
Please take note of “Traditional Owners to take control of their Cultural Heritage” not once again controlled by arrogant white fellows like Moss and Wakefield.
So we should wait to see the outcomes before wasting money and destroy more of Alice Springs.


Wakefield ready for fight: affirms intention to acquire oval
@ Alice resident: You forgot the The Alice Springs Gen­er­al Ceme­tery (Memo­r­i­al) adja­cent to the Avi­a­tion Muse­um.
The graves of Albert Namatji­ra (Abo­rig­i­nal painter from Her­manns­burg), Harold Las­seter (who claimed to have found an as-yet undis­cov­ered 7‑mile-long gold reef in Cen­tral Aus­tralia) and anthro­pol­o­gist Olive Pink, who, eccen­tric to the last, is buried fac­ing the oppo­site direc­tion to every­body else.
The Gen­er­al Ceme­tery is her­itage list­ed.


New Normal recipe from the too hard basket
Alice Springs in the middle of the centre of Australia is a land of opportunities.
All those ideas / projects and more are quite feasible (let the Chinese come in and they will do it in no time!)
The crime depends on some achievements bringing hope for the future. But to achieve we need leaders with vision, stamina and guts. Leaders capable to get out of the box they are in and not scared to rock the boat.
