I'm tempted to drop publicising Bolt since he's become PAYWALL for everyone else at News Corp. He's been reduced to his correct position of cadet reporter Jimmy Olsen and runner. He does, however, provide a focus on a variety of topics and shows just how emotionally and irrationally conservatives think. They tend to be spoilt children crying fire should anyone suggest they need to share their privileges, power and toys rather than hoard them. He's not really required now but then never was but is even less needed by News Corp it seems. (ODT)
Culture and it's beginnings
The incident is not the first time the university’s Liberal club has come under the spotlight.
Last year, another senior club official also found himself the subject of an intervention order by a female factional rival. In 2014, leaked Facebook posts from members described women as "sluts", Muslims as "degenerates" and described all feminists as "ugly."
But the timing of the latest stoush - days into a federal election campaign - is likely to be sensitive for a party that has previously been criticised for being out of touch, or for having problems with women.
Melbourne University's Liberal alumni include federal senator Scott Ryan, retiring federal MP Kelly O'Dwyer, and Victorian Opposition Leader Michael O'Brien.
NOTRE DAME: NOT JUST A CATHEDRAL IN FLAMES
Nevertheless, the truth is Bolt would happily put a bulldozer through this tree if it were standing in his way between himself and a $1. How much is he donating to the restoration of Notre-Dame?
RIDD: WHY MUCH GLOBAL WARMING "SCIENCE" CAN'T BE TRUSTED
“Some have thought that this trial was about freedom of speech and intellectual freedom. Media reports have considered that this trial was about silencing persons with controversial or unpopular views,” Vasta said in his judgement.
“Rather, this trial was purely and simply about the proper construction of a clause in an enterprise agreement.”
“Dr Ridd was not sacked because of his scientific views. Dr Ridd was never gagged or silenced about his scientific views, a matter which was admitted during the court hearing.”
All this means is that the Physics Professor can stand in the Agora and yell that the earth is flat. The only weight the man carries is that given him by the Clarion of Crap News Corp but none for his content. Ridd's reputation as an academic and scientist remains lowere than a snakes belly. His students should be concerned about what it is he's teaching.
