Remember the Walton's man calling? This photo is from Museum Victoria and shows the opening of a Waltons store on 22 October 1964. Waltons had 12 stores around Melbourne and Victoria, and over 60 stores across the eastern states of Australia including Sydney, Newcastle and Gosford. Alan Bond bought Waltons Ltd. in 1981, but the purchase became a financial disaster, with Bond losing $199 million in 1983. The Waltons department store name then disappeared, when Alan Bond sold and split up Waltons in 1987, to interests associated with the Cookes family. The Cookes family then turned the remaining stores into Venture and Norman Ross outlets. In 1994, Venture went bankrupt.
How does this happen? An Adelaide house built with its garage behind a Stobie pole is a “cracking example” of bad development creating traffic and parking issues, says a councillor — but the local council says it’s fine.
Anushya was just seven-years-old when the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami struck her village in southern India, devastating the local fishing economy. With help, families were able to build sturdier homes and livelihoods thanks to the supply of fishing nets and boats and the introduction of alternative income opportunities and education.
The increased focus on education has also helped provide alternative paths for young people in the community, and also equips people with the skills to adapt to change and diversify their skills – increasing job opportunities. Anushya is the first girl in her village to ever complete a professional degree and says “the biggest change that World Vision brought to our village is awareness on the importance of education.”

To the casual observer Kai Eardley, had it all - handsome, smart, a beautiful girlfriend and an excellent athlete. But on a cold and rainy day last August, more than 500 people crammed a Fremantle crematorium, wondering why he was gone.
Almost every Baby Boomer will remember Bex, the analgesic in the form of A.P.C. or aspirin–phenacetin–caffeine tablets or powder. Just about everyone's mum or grandma had a box of powders always at the ready. The product was advertised with the phrase, "Stressful Day? What you need is a cup of tea, a Bex and a good lie down". Bex powders were the housewife's drug of choice in the 50s and 60s until they were shown to be highly addictive and responsible for causing kidney disease when taken in large doses. Even Australian Prime Ministers of Australia can identify with Bex. In September 2011 former P M, Kevin Rudd, told the media, "I just think it would be a good thing if everyone seriously had a cup of tea and a Bex and a long lie down, OK?" over reports of his possible challenge to leader, the incumbent Prime Minister, Julia Gillard!

I was driving when I saw the flash of a traffic camera. I figured that my picture had been taken for exceeding the limit even though I knew that I was not speeding. Just to be sure, I went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now I began to think that this was quite funny, so I drove even slower as I passed the area once more, but the traffic camera again flashed. I tried a fourth and fifth time with the same results and was now laughing as the camera flashed while I rolled past at a snail's pace. Two weeks later, I got five fuckin tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt.
When Alison of Talking Frankly visited this school in India, she was very impressed with the dedicated teachers and staff who together, have created a school environment where children can thrive.
“This modest government school has been transformed by a dedicated headmaster who recognised that education doesn't happen in isolation. He might have had the building, but he needed to create an environment that allowed children's bodies and brains to flourish and for that he went and collaborated with World Vision. There are about 10 children sponsored as part of the World Vision program in this village. That monthly contribution is transforming the lives of over 80 school children directly and many hundreds indirectly.”
